NCAA proposes strict academic integrity policies

-

Today, the NCAA proposed new legislation to enforce a stricter regimen on academic integrity, pertaining to both the athletes and the staff.

In the proposal, the NCAA is looking to remove any “substantial academic assistance” given to athletes who wouldn’t otherwise receive the help. This is a move to level the academic playing field in the NCAA, limiting the athletes’ access to scholastic aid that is “not generally available to the school’s students.”

The proposal ensures the athlete does not receive any special treatment due to their “athlete” status. This prohibits staff from “creating an academic exception” to improve an athlete’s unsatisfactory grade or fill a graduation requirement.

The Division I Council will meet next April to decide upon the legislation’s fate. If it passes, it will be a step towards recognizing these kids for what they are, first and foremost, which is student-athletes.
