OUR OFFICE

The compliance office is primarily responsible for executing the comprehensive compliance program in order to appropriately educate constituents, provide interpretations, and prevent violations of applicable NCAA, ACC, Institute, and GTAA rules.

Constituents include all individuals associated with the GTAA – prospective student-athletes, current student-athletes, coaches, GTAA staff, Georgia Tech faculty and staff, and representatives of athletics interests, or boosters.

The athletics compliance office is a resource for student-athletes, coaches, staff, administration, parents, faculty and devoted Yellow Jackets fans. Our office is located in the Arthur B. Edge Intercollegiate Athletics Center at 150 Bobby Dodd NW Atlanta, GA.
