NCAA Academic Eligibility Rules

Each member institution is responsible for upholding the rules and regulations of the NCAA. At UCLA, the Chancellor is ultimately responsible for the administration of all aspects of the Bruin athletics program, from the actions of staff members to the actions of any other individual or organization engaged in activities promoting the athletic interests of UCLA.

UCLA is committed and obligated to the principle of institutional control in operating its athletics program in a manner consistent with the letter and the spirit of NCAA, Conference, and University rules and regulations. In striving for academic and athletic excellence, UCLA seeks the highest standard of ethical conduct. Involvement by representatives of UCLA's athletics interests (boosters) is critical to the program's success; however, any inappropriate or even inadvertent activity could jeopardize both the eligibility of current or prospective student-athletes and the compliance of the University with NCAA regulations.

Whom to Call with NCAA Questions:

If you have any questions regarding NCAA rules, please contact a member of the UCLA Athletic Compliance Staff or the NCAA before doing something that may jeopardize a student-athlete's eligibility to participate in intercollegiate athletics.
