    What is the difference between an official visit and an unofficial visit?
    Any visit to a college campus by a college-bound student-athlete or his or her parents paid for by the college is an official visit. Visits paid for by college-bound student-athletes or their parents are unofficial visits.

    During an official visit the college can pay for transportation to and from the college for the prospect, lodging and three meals per day for both the prospect and the parent or guardian, as well as reasonable entertainment expenses including three tickets to a home sports event.

    The only expenses a college-bound student-athlete may receive from a college during an unofficial visit are three tickets to a home sports event.

    Also, college football recruits can only take 5 Official Visits. They can take an unlimited number of "unofficials". I think MBB and WBB are the same, but I'm not sure about the other sports.

    This actually answered a question I've wondered about for awhile now: "The only expenses a college-bound student-athlete may receive from a college during an unofficial visit are three tickets to a home sports event."
    I didn't know how they could get the great seats for games if the school wasn't allowed to pay for anything, but apparently the game tickets are an exception to the rule.
