As of June 1, 2012, NCAA Division I member institutions are only permitted to subscribe to scouting services in basketball and football that are approved through the NCAA scouting service approval process. The approval process was implemented by the NCAA national office, to ensure compliance with legislated requirements governing the elements required to permit an institution’s subscription to a recruiting service (see bylaws below).
A one-time exception was applied and the deadline to apply was extended since it was the first year for the NCAA approval process. Beginning in 2013, all deadlines will be strictly enforced and no consideration will be given to circumstances that resulted in a service missing the deadline to apply. The application period for 2013 will be between April 1, 2013, and 11:59pm Eastern Time on May 31, 2013, with NO exceptions.
