Florida State University Educational Efforts

Florida State makes every effort to educate our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, athletic department staff, parents, boosters and anyone else involved with FSU Athletics on NCAA rules and regulations. Below are some examples of seminars and symposiums administered by the FSU Compliance Office.

AGENT DAY: Agent day is held in fall each year at the Moore Athletic Center. Registered agents with the State of Florida and FSU have the opportunity to speak with our football players individually.

ACADEMIC FRAUD SYMPOSIUM: Florida State has an academic fraud symposium, which includes guest speakers on topics such as NCAA violations, NCAA enforcement, NCAA rules education, NCAA athletics certification and Title IX issues.

PARENT DAY: Parent Day is held in the fall and gives parents of our student-athletes an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the NCAA policy on agents and amateurism as well as information on gambling and careers in professional sport. We have sport agents, financial advisors as well as other experts in the field talk to the parents and answer any questions that they may have.

STATE OF FLORIDA COMPLIANCE SUMMIT: This summit gives the Division I Florida schools an opportunity to discuss NCAA policy, compliance issues, and issues dealing with eligibility, recruiting and amateurism. The summit is hosted by different schools each year and is held annually during the summer.

NCAA REGIONAL SEMINAR: This seminar focuses on new legislation at the NCAA. The seminar is held annually in three different regions throughout the U.S. and is open to Compliance officers, Registrar, Life Skills and Financial Aid.

GAMBLING SYMPOSIUM: Florida State hosted its first annual gambling symposium in the fall of 1998. Gambling is a “hot topic” in intercollegiate athletics and we feel it is important to educate student-athletes and staff members on such controversial issues.

FSU FOOTBALL AGENT SYMPOSIUM: This symposium gives our student-athletes, athletic administrators, and coaches a chance to meet with agents, financial advisors and representatives from the NFL and the NFL Players Association.
