Alumni and Friends of Cal Poly Athletics

Cal Poly’s athletics program would not be where it is today without the loyal support of alumni and friends like you. Therefore, your support is equally important to our compliance effort.

Cal Poly is committed to the principle of institutional control in operating its athletics program in a manner that is consistent with the letter and spirit of the NCAA, Big West Conference and University rules and regulations. This takes commitment of shared compliance responsibilities by all those involved. Members of the athletics department, other institutional staff members, student-athletes as well as individuals and groups representing Cal Poly’s athletics interests share in this responsibility to the commitment to rules compliance. By helping Cal Poly in rules compliance, you are helping preserve the integrity and excellence of Cal Poly athletics and protecting the athletics eligibility of our student-athletes.

Below are links to help you understand key NCAA rules and regulations and become familiar with NCAA terminology. Hopefully this will answer many questions for you, but if you come upon a situation in which you are not too sure how to respond, please contact our compliance office before acting.
