    Dear Trojan Fans, The University of Southern California's objective and desire, as a member of the Pacific 12 Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association, is to educate and assist its student-athletes, faculty, staff, alumni and friends to comply with all applicable NCAA and Pac-12 Conference rules.

    Our website is currently undergoing significant re-design and renovation. However, during this period of transition, we have provided several informational brochures and outlines high-lighting a number of key compliance issues for your review and information. These materials are provided as a quick reference and the examples discussed are not exhaustive. Please contact the Office of Athletic Compliance if you have any questions about situations or actions that are not addressed or covered in these materials.

    The Athletic Department appreciates your interest and support for all of its teams and student-athletes, but we want to remind you that any inappropriate contact or an inadvertent action on your part could jeopardize the eligibility of our prospects and student-athletes. When in doubt, the safest course of action is to "Ask Before Acting."

    The University of Southern California is proud to have the loyal support of our alumni and friends for its athletic programs. As we continue to celebrate our rich tradition, we must always seek the highest standard of ethical conduct. We can and will accomplish this goal with your support.

    Thanks you for your assistance and cooperation, and Fight On!
