Rules for Current Student-Athletes

As a student-athlete at GW you are responsible to ensure you and your program are adhering to University and NCAA rules. Progress toward degree, playing and practice seasons, amateurism and your role in recruiting are just a few of the topics you need to be well versed in. This website has been set up to help educate you about these and other topics. Please note the scope and complexity of NCAA legislation precludes complete coverage on this website. We suggest, therefore, that you forward additional questions to the Compliance Officer or Athletic Director or go directly to the website link at the bottom of this page.
