INTRODUCTION

As a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (“NCAA”), Rutgers University must abide by NCAA rules and regulations as they relate to all aspects of its athletic program. In addition to ensuring that all of its coaches, administrators, University faculty and staff, and student-athletes are aware of and following NCAA rules, Rutgers is also responsible for the actions of any individual who is a “representative of athletic interests.”

Compliance with NCAA rules requires the effort of everyone associated with an institution’s athletic program – institutional staff, faculty, students, student-athletes and representatives of athletic interests. In order to act within NCAA rules, it is important to understand not only the rules themselves, but also why the NCAA rules exist and why schools must monitor compliance with the rules.

The information contained in this site was developed to provide you with a general overview of key Division I NCAA rules and regulations. If you have any additional questions about NCAA rules and regulations, you should contact the NCAA directly or visit the NCAA website at www.ncaa.org.

NCAA PRINCIPLES FOR CONDUCT OF INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS

General Overview

Over the years, thousands of NCAA rules have been written.  Each rule is developed to advance one of the NCAA’s 16 basic guiding principles:  The Principles for Conduct of Intercollegiate Athletics.  These principles include:  Institutional Control and Responsibility, Student-Athlete Well-being, Gender Equity, Diversity, Sportsmanship and Ethical Conduct, Sound Academic Standards, Nondiscrimination, Rules Compliance, Amateurism, Eligibility, Financial Aide, Economy of Athletics Program Operation, among others.

Institutional Control

The Principle of Institutional Control and Responsibility (referred to as “institutional control”) is the principle upon which compliance with all other principles, rules and regulations depends.  This principle defines each school’s responsibility to monitor compliance with NCAA rules.  This principle is the foundation upon which every NCAA institution’s compliance program is built. 

The Principle of Institutional Control and Responsibility:
It is the responsibility of each member institution to control its intercollegiate athletics program in compliance with the rules and regulations of the Association. The institution’s chief executive officer is responsible for the administration of all aspects of the athletics program, including approval of the budget and audit of all expenditures.

 The institution’s responsibility for the conduct of its intercollegiate athletics program includes responsibility for the actions of its staff members and for the actions of any other individual or organization engaged in activities promoting the athletics interests of the institution.
