Necessary Paperwork
It is important that we receive certain information before you are able to stay the evening with us and take part in an official visit. If you would like your visit to be unofficial according to NCAA standards please let Coach Jenn know.

All potential student athletes are required to register with the NCAA Clearinghouse prior to an official visit. Click on the link below to register.

NCAA Clearinghouse

A copy of your high school transcript must be on file with the department of athletics no later than one week prior to your visit. This does not have to be an official transcript and can be mailed or faxed to the rowing office.

Test Scores
A copy of your SAT or ACT scores must also be on file in athletics no later than one week prior to your visit. If your test scores are provided on your transcript that information fulfills the requirement. If not you must send a copy of your results via mail or fax to the rowing office.



Information on "Official" and "Unofficial" visits
Per NCAA standards an official visit is one in which the institution pays for the visit. Prospective student-athletes are only allowed one official visit per institution and five official visits overall. However, prospective student-athletes have an unlimited number of unofficial visits available to them. The institution is unable to provide meal money and lodging to prospective student-athletes that are on an unofficial visit and the institution is unable to provide transportation to and from the airport if the athlete chooses to fly.

Travel Information
Duquesne Women's Rowing will NOT provide airfare for any recruit that wishes to fly. We will provide transportation to and from the airport for those that request it. Meals and lodging will be provided for all recruits for the duration of their stay. If parents wish to accompany their student-athlete they can contact the Courtyard Marriott Downtown and have a blocked room transferred to their name at a discount price.

Pittsburgh Downtown Hampton Inn & Suites
A block of rooms has been set aside for the night of September 19th under Duquesne Women's Rowing. These rooms are limited and will be on a first come first serve basis. Please contact the hotel and have one of these rooms transferred into your name. Rooms that are not reserved by August 22, 2008 will be released.
