APPROVED:  December 17, 2012 
EFFECTIVE:  March 1, 2013


The following guidelines have been established for the operation of DCC intercollegiate athletic programs:

1. Dawson Community College will make available institutional athletic financial grant-in-
    aid to help form the nucleus of its baseball, basketball, softball, rodeo, and volleyball
    teams.  Grant-in-aid will be allocated upon the recommendation of the Head Coach and
    the approval of the Athletic Director.  Written notice of the offer for the academic year
    shall be given to the student-athlete on the National Letter of Intent form.  All athletic
    aid will be administered through the DCC Financial Aid Office, whom will also document
    the offered amount on the student’s award letter.

Each designated team is provided financial scholarship waivers within NJCAA and NIRA guidelines for the following waivers at the value of:

Men’s basketball       - $84,105.00 and 15 book waivers
Women’s basketball  - $84,105.00 and 15 book waivers
Baseball                   - $84,105.00
Softball                    - $84,105.00
Volleyball                 - $78,498.00
Rodeo                      - $112,140 and 20 book waivers

It is essential for the athletic department to put forth aggressive recruitment efforts to
attain in-state athletes.  The dollar amount offered above is based on the combination of
60% in-state and WUE and 40% out-of-state.  With the 60/40 percentage rate in mind,
the base number and guidelines for each sport are as follows:

Men’s basketball       - 15 tuition waivers
Women’s basketball  - 15 tuition waivers
Baseball                   - 15 tuition waivers
Softball                    - 15 tuition waivers
Volleyball                 - 14 tuition waivers 
Rodeo                      - 20 tuition waivers

Book waivers entitle the student/athlete to use returnable texts, but the student/athlete
shall purchase his/her own non-returnable materials.  Student/athlete(s) shall be
responsible for full payment of any returnable textbooks not returned at the end of each
academic term.  Each Division I sport (men’s basketball, women’s basketball and rodeo) will continue to receive $6000 each for additional financial assistance allowable by the association.

II. Athletic fiscal waiver amounts follow the set tuition and fee sheet established for
    Dawson Community College each academic year.  While it may be possible to provide
    additional scholarships or financial support for eligible team members, all grant-in-aids
    from any source will be administered through Dawson Community College Financial Aid

III. In an effort to miss as few days as possible from regular class, the Dean of Student
     Services shall review and approve all athletic team schedules and any revisions to the
     original schedules.  The maximum number of scheduled season games/rodeos shall
     comply with the NJCAA or NIRA standards.  Any associated costs that are beyond the
     current annual budget shall be secured through the collaborative fund-raising efforts
     of the coaches and their teams.  The coach for each sport is required to notify the
     faculty at least one week in advance of when and who will be absent from classes to
     participate in scheduled games/rodeos.

IV. The DCC Athletic Director is responsible for supervising the athletic department in
     compliance with the rules, policies and procedures of the NJCAA and NIRA Association,
     DCC, and within Title IX parameters.  The Athletic Director shall prepare an annual
     written report on the athletic department’s compliance with these established rules,
     policies, and guidelines.  The Athletic Director shall submit this report to the DCC
     Board of Trustees by the end of the fiscal year.  The Athletic Director and coaches are
     responsible to the Dean of Student Services for the implementation of athletic 
     department guidelines and schedules.  The Athletic Director will coordinate and
     participate in internal and external fund-raising activities to help secure fiscal and
     spectator support for all DCC athletic programs.

V. Complimentary season tickets will be restricted to no more than 200 for all ticketed
    sports events.  Senior Citizen gold cards will be honored at regular home season

SCOPE                These procedures apply to Dawson Community College.
