Ohio University is committed to the principle of institutional control and operating its athletics program in a manner consistent with the letter and spirit of the National Collegiate Athletics Association, the Mid-American Conference and Ohio University regulations.

Compliance is a wide-ranging area, covering all functions of the athletics department including - but not limited to - recruiting, financial aid, eligibility, playing seasons, awards, extra benefits and rules education.

As a member of the NCAA, Ohio is responsible for the actions of its student-athletes, staff, alumni, boosters and fans. The Compliance Office coordinates, monitors, and verifies adherence to all NCAA and MAC regulations. We are dedicated to providing educational programs and interpretive support to ensure that all individuals involved with our athletics program understand and meet Ohio's compliance expectations.

The information contained on this site is provided to give you a general overview of key NCAA rules and regulations. This site serves as a tool for Ohio athletics supporters, prospective and current student-athletes, as well as coaches and faculty.

If you should have any additional questions regarding NCAA, MAC, or Ohio rules and regulations, we encourage you to contact a member of the compliance office staff.
