Extra Benefits

In general terms, an extra benefit is defined as : Any special arrangement by an individual to provide "any item or service of value" not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation to any of the following:

  • Prospect or current student-athlete
  • Prospect or current student-athlete's family member (s)
  • Prospect or current student-athlete's friend (s)

If a "benefit" is generally available to:

  • Any other student at a collegiate institution; or
  • The general public

Then it would NOT be considered an "extra benefit" and would not be a violation of NCAA legislation.


Accepting an extra benefit may jeopardize a student-athlete's athletics eligibility.Extra Benefits Examples-LSU Compliance.jpg
