NCAA Compliance

Compliance and adherence with the rules and regulations established by the NCAA and the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) is of critical importance to Green Mountain College (GMC) and the Athletic Department. As a member of the NCAA, the Green Mountain College Athletic Department must meet the standards of institutional control and uphold the rules and regulations mandated by the NCAA.

This website will serve as a reference to many of the NCAA rules that may apply to prospective student athletes (PSAs), enrolled (or current) student athletes, as well as boosters.  Many of the applicable rules have been included, but not all. If you need specific information that is not included on this website or have further questions, please contact the Athletic Director

WHAT IS ATHLETIC COMPLIANCE?  Athletic compliance involves adhering to the spirit and intent of the rules and regulations of the NCAA. The compliance program within the Athletic Department of GMC coordinates the compliance efforts, functions as a resource center concerning NCAA regulations, and serves to educate its student-athletes, coaches, administrators, faculty, staff, and boosters about NCAA rules and regulations. The primary functions of the compliance program are to administer, monitor, and verify the accurate completion of NCAA required documentation, to assist in maintaining institutional compliance with NCAA rules, and reporting infractions or violations of rules to the NCAA.

ASK FIRST.  Compliance with NCAA regulations is of the highest priority for our athletic program and institution. We need your assistance in complying with NCAA rules. Do not put the College, a prospective student-athlete or an enrolled student-athlete at risk of a penalty or loss of eligibility.  When you are faced with a situation and are unsure how to respond, we strongly urge you to remember to "ASK BEFORE YOU ACT".   If you have a need to inquire further, please direct your questions to the Athletic Director.
