For NCAA, when does one become 'enrolled' in college?

<p>So son has his HS diploma and we have paid 1st (of many) installment of his tuition for College of his choice where he will participate in a Div III winter sport starting this fall. So for NCAA purposes, is he no longer a 'recruit' but be considered an 'enrolled' student?</p>

<p>Reason I am curious is that son will be at a national tournament this summer where his Coach-to-be will also be. We are trying to figure out whether the rules that govern their interaction there will be "coach-athlete" or "coach-recruit"</p>

<p>I tried wading through the NCAA rule book but got lost.</p>

<p>Why don't you just email the coach and ask him? He would know the rules for sure.</p>
