Compliance at the University of Sioux Falls

Compliance with NCAA regulations at the University of Sioux Falls is very broad, encompassing all functions of the athletic department. Keeping USF student-athletes, coaches and administrators aware of current NCAA and conference rules is the key to ensuring proper rules compliance.

Each year, USF coaches must pass a recruiting exam on NCAA rules and be certified to recruit off-campus.  All USF coaches and staff must also sign a Certification of Compliance each fall, indicating their compliance with all NCAA regulations throughout the past calendar year. Through our regular meetings with coaches and athletic staff, team meetings, and constant monitoring of all NCAA regulations, the University of Sioux Falls wants to win only within the rules.

Maintaining institutional control of our athletics programs at the University of Sioux Falls is imperative to maintain integrity and a successful Cougar athletic program. Proper rules compliance is the concern of everyone associated with the University of Sioux Falls, including our alumni, boosters and fans.
