Carrying on the Dartmouth College and Ivy League traditions of excellence is hard work and competition among the best institutions is intense. Searching for a competitive edge is part of the challenge. However, meeting those challenges means playing by the rules. The NCAA has rules for coaches, student-athletes, administrators, alumni and fans.
The Compliance Office in the Athletic Department works to educate coaches, student-athletes, staff members and the Dartmouth community in regards to NCAA and Ivy rules. If you have any questions in this area, please don't hesitate to contact us.

For Representatives of Athletics Interests
You are considered a representative of Dartmouth's athletic interests if:
- You are or have ever been a member of any group that supports or promotes the Dartmouth athletics program.
- You have made financial donations to the athletic program.
- You have ever helped arrange or provided employment for an enrolled student-athlete, a prospective student-athlete, or their parents or relatives.
- You have helped in any way to recruit student-athletes.
According to the NCAA, once an individual is identified as a representative of athletic interests, the individual retains that status for life. Any contact you have with prospective student-athletes, their parents, coaches, teachers or counselors, and anything you provide for prospective or current student-athletes is subject to NCAA rules. Impermissible contacts can affect the eligibility of Dartmouth's student-athletes. Dartmouth College is responsible for the actions of all its representatives, and reserves the right to withhold any benefit or privilege associated with the athletic department.
Per NCAA rules, all in-person, on- and off-campus recruiting contacts with a prospective student-athlete or the prospective student-athlete's relatives or legal guardians shall be made only by authorized institutional staff members. Such contact, as well as correspondence and telephone calls, by representatives of an institution's athletics interests is prohibited.
