Compliance

Northwestern Oklahoma State University is dedicated and obligated to the principle of institutional control in operating its athletic program. The department operates in a manner that is consistent with all NCAA, Great American Conference and University rules and regulations. Northwestern Oklahoma State University strives for academic and athletic excellence, as well as maintaining the highest standard of ethical conduct.


Involvement with our athletics program is critical to our success, but any inappropriate activity, even if unintentional, could jeopardize the eligibility of our current and prospective student-athletes and the compliance of Northwestern Oklahoma State University with NCAA regulations. 


Northwestern’s Athletic Department maintains programs that coordinates monitors and verifies compliance with all NCAA requirements. The office also seeks to educate the various departments at Northwestern and the athletic community regarding NCAA regulations, especially those relating to interactions between representatives and prospective student-athletes and current student-athletes. 


Northwestern’s Director of Intercollegiate Athletics reports directly to University President and works on a daily basis with the other department administrators, Compliance office and Faculty Athletic Representative.


If you have any questions regarding eligibility or recruiting at Northwestern, please contact Wendy McManus, Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance, at (580) 327-8635 or at wsmcmanus@nwosu.edu.
