Sports Wagering/Gambling

NCAA defines sports wagering as placing, accepting or soliciting a wager (on a staff member's or student-athlete's own behalf or on the behalf of others) of any type with any individual or organization on any intercollegiate, amateur or professional team or contest involving any NCAA sponsored sport. Examples of sports wagering include, but are not limited to, the use of a bookmaker or parlay card; Internet sports wagering; auctions in which bids are placed on teams, individuals or contests; and pools or fantasy leagues in which an entry fee is required and there is an opportunity to win a prize. Sports wagering of any kind is strictly prohibited. [Bylaw 10.3]

Student-athletes should immediately report any offer to gamble on the outcome of an athletic competition, whether directly or indirectly, Compliance Office. Any individual seeking information or asking student-athletes to "arrange" the outcome of any athletics contest must also be reported to the Compliance Office.

Any involvement in activities designed to influence the outcome of an intercollegiate contest or any solicitation or acceptance of a bet involving San Jose State University will result in an automatic loss of eligibility.
