THE MOST IMPORTANT RULES THAT AGENCIES MUST COMPLY WITH

    • Guarantee an NCAA scholarship
    • Charge students a fee based on receiving a scholarship, or based on the amount or percentage of the scholarship obtained
  • The NCAA “Eligibility Center” may require that the student-athlete receiving the scholarship certify their compliance with the recruitment services legislation by asking for:
    • Copies of all documents that the student’s family signed with the agency
    • A description of the services provided by the agency
  • In the case of non-compliance with the NCAA rules, the student-athlete may be penalized, or even become ineligible to receive a scholarship in the  NCAA.
