Abstract

Over the past few years, the NCAA has been at the forefront of providing additional benefits to student-athletes and recently the NCAA passed the cost of attendance legislation. But with this legislation comes unintended consequences in the form of a recruiting advantage for many institutions and amendments would need to be made to combat the advantage (Katz, 2015). In order to examine the possibility of a recruiting advantage from the cost of attendance legislation, the senior members of each compliance office within the American Athletic Conference were surveyed (n=11). The survey was used to gain their opinions on various topics related to cost of attendance such as a possibly recruiting advantage, financial impact on the institution, and the financial impact on the student-athletes. Overall, the respondents did not conclusively show that they have a strong indication towards a recruiting benefit being gained from the cost of attendance legislation.
