Section One: Letter from the Athletic Director
This Handbook has been prepared by the athletic department staff for your benefit. It contains statements of NCAA and SIUC policies concerning the responsibilities of student-athletes who participate in intercollegiate athletics. Please remember that you are held responsible for the information contained in this document. Particular questions concerning your rights and responsibilities as a student-athlete not addressed in this book should be directed to your coach or to a member of the athletics department staff.
A primary philosophy of Intercollegiate Athletics at SIUC is student first, athlete second. I urge you to use the academic counseling assistance that we provide to ensure your success in the classroom.
If at anytime I or anyone on the athletics staff can assist you, please do not hesitate to contact us. If one of us is unable to assist you directly, we will introduce you to someone who can help you.
Best wishes for a successful academic and athletic year at SIUC!
