Unofficial Visit

An unofficial visit to a member institution by a prospective student-athlete is a visit made at the prospective student-athlete's own expense. North Texas may not pay for any of a prospect's or his or her accompanying family members expenses during an unofficial visit. This includes: meals, lodging, entertainment (except 3 complimentary admissions to a North Texas home athletics event), parking fees, and transportation (except to tour North Texas facilities within a 30-mile radius of campus).

Student-Athlete Hosts

Current North Texas student-athletes may serve as hosts when prospects make an Official Visit to campus. North Texas allows a maximum of $30 per day to cover all actual costs of entertaining the prospect. This money should be used primarily for food. A prospect is not permitted to use this money to purchase souvenirs to take home.

Official and Unofficial Visits to the North Texas campus may not be scheduled during a dead period unless the prospect has signed an NLI or the institution's written offer of admission or financial aid or the institution has received a financial deposit (e.g. housing deposit) in response to the institution's offer of admission.
