East Carolina University (ECU) is committed and obligated to the principle of institutional control in operating its athletics programs. This task is accomplished by operating in accordance with NCAA, Conference USA and University rules and regulations. The charge of the ECU's Athletics Office of Compliance is to not only educate, monitor and verify NCAA rules compliance for the athletic department, but also work collectively with the institution's various constituency groups to ensure that policies and procedures are implemented to ensure that we are maintaining institutional control.
The Office of Compliance strives to be proactive with education and the implementation of monitoring systems that are effective and efficient. To note, maintaining institutional control could not be possible without open communication with faculty, staff, student-athletes and the individuals that make up our great Pirate Nation. Therefore, we take pride in facilitating all compliance related inquiries expeditiously and in a friendly manor.
This site is intended to provide a basic understanding of NCAA rules and regulations. While not all inclusive, it is meant to provide guidance in many of the situations you may encounter and should help you avoid inadvertently violating NCAA legislation.
