Dear Canes Fans:
As a supporter of University of Miami athletics, we want to thank you very much for your continued commitment to our institution and to our athletics program. The University of Miami is also committed to maintaining a model athletics program in compliance with all NCAA, ACC and University of Miami rules and regulations. The responsibility to ensure compliance falls on every member of the University community, including those who support our athletics programs. Your awareness of—and adherence to—NCAA, ACC and University of Miami rules and regulations is essential to the success of our athletics program.
Please click here to review the guidelines pertaining to contact with our student-athletes and their families. Under NCAA rules, our athletics department is responsible for any infractions caused by our supporters, intentional or accidental. Because of this, we ask for your assistance and encourage you to contact us should you have any questions pertaining to NCAA rules.
As a reminder, an extra benefit is any special arrangement not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation provided by an institutional employee or a representative of the institution’s athletics interest* to a student-athlete or the student-athlete’s relative or friend. The receipt of a benefit by a student-athlete or his or her relatives or friends is not a violation of NCAA legislation if it is demonstrated that the same benefit is available to the general public or to all of the institution’s students, their relatives, or friends.
For example, a discounted rate may not be provided to a student-athlete unless that discount it is unrelated to athletics and is available to all others (e.g., group/student discount, first come-first serve discount, etc.).
The information attached is not intended to address every situation or question that might arise. If you are unable to find the answers you need, or you have additional questions, please “ask before you act,” by contacting the University of Miami’s athletics compliance office at 305-284-2692.
Thank you for your support of the Hurricanes!
Director of Athletics
Associate AD for Compliance
