NCAA Rules And Regulations
As a supporter of the University of Connecticut, you should be aware that there are many National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) rules and regulations that govern the institution's intercollegiate athletics program. These regulations govern your conduct as well as the conduct of student-athletes, coaches and administrators. The information contained in this site is provided to offer a general overview of key NCAA rules. If you have a need to inquire further, please direct your questions to the Division of Athletics' Compliance Office.

|NCAA Position on Gambling
The NCAA opposes all forms of legal and illegal sports wagering. Sports wagering has the potential to undermine the integrity of sports contests and jeopardizes the welfare of student-athletes and the intercollegiate athletics community. Sports wagering demeans the competition and competitors alike by a message that is contrary to the purposes and meaning of "sport." Sports competition should be appreciated for the inherent benefits related to participation of student-athletes, coaches and institutions in fair contests, not the amount of money wagered on the outcome of the competition.
For these reasons, the NCAA membership has adopted specific rules prohibiting athletics department staff members and student-athletes from engaging in gambling activities as they relate to intercollegiate or professional sporting events.
Compliance with NCAA regulations is of the highest priority for our athletic program and institution. We need your assistance in complying with NCAA rules. Don't put the University, a prospective student-athlete or an enrolled student-athlete at risk of a penalty or loss of eligibility.
When you are faced with a situation and are unsure as how to respond, we strongly urge you to remeber that it's better safe than sorry and please "Ask Before You Act."
