NCAA regulations permit an LSU coach or staff member to provide a student-athlete or an entire team with an occasional meal (and transportation to attend the meal) at any location in the Baton Rouge area (e.g., home, campus, restaurant).
An LSU booster (or representative of athletics interests) may also provide a meal on infrequent and special occasions, but these meals must take place at the individual's home, on campus or at a facility that is regularly used for home competition. Boosters may provide transportation to the meal only if it takes place at their home.
A few important reminders regarding occasional meals:
- SEC regulations limit occasional meals to once per month per student-athlete
- A prospect enrolled in summer school and attending classes during the summer term may attend an occasional meal
- A signee may attend an occasional meal prior to the first day of classes only if they have arrived on campus with the intent of staying at LSU to attend classes that semester
All occasional meals must be preapproved by the Compliance Office. To seek approval to provide an occasional meal, please read, complete and submit this form:
