Giving student athletes too much money in textbook stipends.
Per the report, 265 student-athletes received an $800 stipend for books. Of those athletes, 72 apparently received more money than was needed for the books, while another 30 received more than their financial aid permitted.
“On an individual basis, for those student-athletes who received cash that exceeded the cost of books and supplies, the value of the overages ranged from $5 to $734 and totaled $16,180. Collectively, the 30 student-athletes who exceeded their individual financial aid limits received a total of $5,237 in excess of their financial aid limits.”
Cal Poly got more of a punishment for giving its athletes textbooks than North Carolina got for fake classes
