The task of the Whittier College compliance office is to ensure that coaches, staff, and student-athletes remain in compliance with NCAA Division III rules on a day-to-day basis. The coaches, staff, and student-athletes at WC have a fundamental respect for doing what is right and taking pride in their adherence to NCAA rules. The compliance staff strives to provide answers to questions within 24-48 hours, depending upon the complexity of the question and whether consultation with the conference office or the NCAA is necessary.

The mission of Whittier College's Compliance Office shall be to efficiently conduct the business of NCAA compliance as directed by Whittier College, the NCAA and the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC). A basic purpose of the athletic compliance office is to maintain the institution's integrity in the area of athletic compliance and to assist the athletic department in maintaining intercollegiate athletics as an integral part of the educational program and the athlete as an integral part of the student body.

Each individual involved in intercollegiate athletics is obligated to maintain competency with respect to knowledge of the rules; to act within his or her realm of responsibility in full compliance with the governing legislation; and to report any violation of NCAA, conference and/or institutional rules of which he or she is aware.

The links provided offer general information about NCAA rules, but are not meant to be a full description of what is permissible (or impermissible). You are encouraged to always ask before you act!

With your help and your commitment to NCAA rules, we can continue the proud tradition and outstanding success of the Whittier College Athletic Department! Thank you!
