Welcome to the University of the South’s compliance page. Rules compliance is everyone’s responsibility. 


The NCAA’s Principle of Rules Compliance

Each institution shall comply with all applicable rules and regulations of the NCAA in the conduct of its intercollegiate athletics programs.  It shall monitor its programs to assure compliance and to identify and report to the NCAA instances in which compliance has not been achieved.   In any such instance, the institution shall cooperate fully with the NCAA and shall take appropriate corrective actions.  Members of an institution’s staff, student-athletes, and other individuals and groups representing the athletics interests shall comply with the applicable NCAA rules, and the member institution shall be responsible for such compliance.

The University of the South is committed to the principles of institutional control in operating its athletic program in a manner consistent with the spirit of the NCAA, Southern Athletic Association (SAA) and University rules and regulations.

This site is designed to provide information to help Tiger student-athletes, prospective student-athletes, coaches and friends of Sewanee Tiger athletics to understand and follow the NCAA, Conference, and University Athletic regulations.
