Division III Committee on Infractions Releases Decision in University of New England Case

On June 14, 2012, the NCAA Division III Committee on Infractions (COI) released its decision regarding the University of New England enforcement case. The COI found the institution failed to monitor its financial-aid process. Specifically, the institution awarded financial aid packages during two academic years to student-athletes in a pattern clearly distinguishable from what was provided to all students at the university. Further, the COI believed the institution failed to monitor admissions personnel involved in the determination of financial aid awards by failing to educate them regarding NCAA Division III financial aid legislation.

The penalties implemented as a result of this decision include: (1) two years of probation; (2) a suspension for the director of athletics; and (3) and forfeiture of the financial aid in question

The public report from the COI can be found here.

The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm will provide a full review of this case as well in the July 2012 College Sports Best Practices newsletter.
