Barton Compliance

Barton College is committed and obligated to the principle of institutional control in operating its athletics program in a manner that is consistent with the letter and the spirit of the NCAA, Conference Carolinas, and College rules and regulations.

The compliance office coordinates, monitors, and verifies compliance with all NCAA requirements and educates the various constituencies of the College and the community regarding NCAA/Conf. Carolinas regulations. The compliance office is dedicated to providing educational programs and interpretive support to ensure that all individuals involved with the athletics program understand and adhere to the college's compliance expectations. 

The athletics department is committed to the principle of institutional control through the education of coaches, staff, student-athletes and other individuals within the athletics program. The compliance office has put into place monitoring procedures and educational programs that provide guidance in how to work within the rules. Each individual within the athletics department is obligated to maintain competency in knowledge of rules, to act within his or her realm of responsibility in full compliance with the rules and to report any violations of the rules.

When a violation occurs, the Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance conducts an investigation and reports the findings to the Director of Athletics and the Faculty Athletics Representative. Rules violations are reported to the conference office and NCAA with copies going to the President, FAR, Conference Commissioner, Director of Athletics, and any staff members involved. Appropriate self-imposed penalties will be included as well as any corrective action that was taken to rectify the situation that caused the problem.


It is the goal of the compliance program to place the College in a proactive position by educating, overseeing, and monitoring the intercollegiate athletics program and maintaining a positive compliance environment.
