The East Tennessee State University Compliance Office works to ensure that the intercollegiate athletics department operates according to all University and NCAA rules and regulations. That includes anyone involved or associated with ETSU Athletics. As a member of the ETSU family, you play an integral role in maintaining compliance with these rules by your actions. This site is designed to educate you on NCAA rules and bylaws that can affect not only the eligibility of our current student-athletes and prospective student-athletes, but also our athletic teams, the intercollegiate athletics department and the University.
