According to the NCAA.org article, Edmond's waiver could result in a few different options for the student-athlete.
"While Carson began the fall 2011 semester as a student at Arizona State, the NCAA was examining his initial eligibility waiver," the article states. "When prospective student-athletes are listed as non-qualifiers, their institutions can choose to file that waiver to the NCAA on behalf of the student.
"Ultimately, the NCAA staff can come to one of four distinct decisions regarding initial eligibility waivers. Two of the options are simple to understand: The waiver can be fully approved, granting the student-athlete the ability to receive aid, practice, and play immediately. Or it can be denied. Between those two poles is a middle ground. One result allows the student-athlete to receive athletically related financial aid, though they cannot practice or play with the team. Finally, there is the decision that was made regarding Carson, which involves the receipt of aid and inclusion on the team in every function except competition during the first year."
