As a member of the Ivy League and the NCAA, the University of Pennsylvania is committed to the principle of institutional control and will maintain all aspects of its intercollegiate athletics program in full accordance with all NCAA, Ivy League and University rules and procedures.


  1. In Division I, representatives of an institution's athletics interests are prohibited from making in-person, on or off-campus recruiting contacts, or written or telephone communications with a prospect or the prospect's relatives or legal guardians.

  2. Athletic representatives are prohibited from providing a student-athlete with any extra benefits.

  3. Once you are a booster, you will always be considered a booster by NCAA Compliance.
