Oct. 16, 2017

CLEVELAND – The National Association for Athletics Compliance (NAAC) has released NCAA Division I industry compliance standards related to Eligibility.

In composing its “Reasonable Standards”, NAAC seeks input from a variety of NCAA Division I athletics professionals including campus and conference compliance administrators, athletics directors, and conference commissioners, as well as NCAA staff members, including the NCAA Enforcement Staff. The result of the Committee’s work is a model that assists institutions in understanding the expected industry standard for monitoring, education and documentation.

“We are pleased to release the Eligibility standard, continuing with NAAC’s goal of helping our membership seek to manage appropriate levels of monitoring, education, and documentation with NCAA rules issues on their respective campuses,” said NAAC Reasonable Standards Committee Chair Trace Wilgus, assistant athletics director of risk management & compliance services at the University of Texas. “We again want to thank NAAC members, various NCAA staff, and all other administrators who assisted our Reasonable Standards Committee during the standard development and feedback process. This standard was challenging for our committee for a number of reasons, but we are proud of the finished product and believe it is an excellent resource for our membership.”
