The purpose of the NCAA is to maintain intercollegiate athletics as an important part of the educational program and the student-athlete as an integral part of the student body and to retain a clear line of difference between intercollegiate athletics and professional sports.
UL Lafayette, as an NCAA member institution, is responsible for applying and enforcing the legislation set forth by the NCAA regarding basic athletic issues such as admissions, financial aid, eligibility, and recruiting. When a staff member, student-athlete, or other individual or group representing UL Lafayette's Athletic Department fails to do so, UL Lafayette will be subject to disciplinary and corrective action determined by the NCAA.
An important aspect of NCAA Compliance is self-reporting rules violations. Self-reporting is considered to reflect a solid program of institutional control. Any self-reported violations may be reported to the Athletics Compliance Office.
