NCAA DI Council ad hoc Implementation of Full Cost of Attendance

As you know, with the new Division I autonomy group structure, legislation has been approved for paying Full Cost Of Attendance. In response to that, a committee is presently studying the impact of the ruling and is seeking feedback from schools, conferences, and coach associations. Linked is a document that should be read and discussed with the appropriate administrators and other coaches at your institution. After discussing you will be asked to complete a survey with the following questions (do not try to fill out below and return). The survey will be sent the week of December 14. Please be thorough in reviewing the linked document in preparation for responding to the survey. We will provide two responses, one for Women's Swimming and Diving and one for Men's Swimming and Diving.

Sample Survey Questions- based on information outlined in the above linked document.

FEEDBACK ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF FINANCIAL AID UP TO THE COST OF ATTENDANCE

1. In your opinion, is the issue of roster expansion a concern to the Division I Commitment to Fair Competition that needs to be addressed proactively based on the information available?

  • Yes
  • No

2. Would you prefer more data about how cost of attendance in equivalency sports is affecting the Division I Commitment to Fair Competition before modifying the legislation, as the legislation went into effect August 1, 2015 (i.e., Concept No. 1)?

  • Yes
  • No

Whether proposed for the 2016-17 legislative cycle or at a later point,  please review Question No. 3 to determine if it is a viable alternativeto address potential negative impact to Fair Competition in equivalency sports arising out of the recently adopted cost of attendance legislation.

3. Does the concept of allowing schools to provide cost of attendance without impacting the equivalency numerator and denominator, only in proportion to a student-athlete’s equivalency computation, appropriately address the concern over the application of cost of attendance (i.e., Concept No. 2)?

  • Yes
  • No

4. In addition, the working group reviewed Proposal No. 2015-67: Financial Aid – Maximum Limits on Financial Aid – Team Limits – Nonathletically Related Institutional Financial Aid. The proposal, if adopted, will have a direct impact on the charge of the working group as it may further the concern regarding the application of cost of attendance in equivalency sports. However, because the proposal will be voted on in April 2016 by the NCAA Division I Council, the working group is interested in gathering the membership’s feedback as it relates to the proposal. Therefore, do you support the Division I Council adopting Proposal No. 2015-67 as legislation in April 2016?

  • Yes
  • No
