The University of Wyoming Athletics Compliance OfficeAsk Cowboy Compliance
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) governs the actions of the University of Wyoming's coaches and student-athletes and has explicit guidelines that regulate the operation of our athletics programs. Institutional control is a fundamental requirement of NCAA legislation. Institutional control includes oversight and responsibility for the actions of coaches, staff, student-athletes and boosters, whether or not the university is aware of those actions.
The University of Wyoming Compliance Office is responsible for ensuring that individuals and groups representing the institution's athletics programs comply with all pertinent institutional, Mountain West Conference, and NCAA regulations. The integrity of the institution is upheld by promptly investigating any known or alleged rules violations and self-reporting any confirmed infractions. In addition, the Compliance Office strives to establish a student-athlete and coach-focused environment by providing effective and consistent interpretations of Mountain West Conference and NCAA legislation. This goal is advanced by providing the institution's athletics teams with every opportunity to be successful in their endeavors within the confines of the rules.
This compliance site will further assist coaches, prospective student-athletes, current student-athletes, and athletics representatives/boosters and anyone else interested in intercollegiate athletics and the University of Wyoming. Compliance is everyone's responsibility and we need help in ensuring the growth and success of Wyoming Athletics.
The information on this site is designed to provide education on the "do's and don'ts" outlined by the NCAA and to provide information to better inform those interested in the procedures of intercollegiate athletics.
