The Athletic Director, Compliance Director, and Financial Aid Director share responsibility for monitoring compliance with NCAA financial aid regulations. All athletic aid will be awarded in accordance with NCAA and SD Mines rules and regulations. No aid for any student-athlete will be awarded, paid, cancelled or altered without approval of the Financial Aid Office and the Department of Athletics. Approval of aid will be contingent upon submission of all appropriate forms by the Department of Athletics, the student-athlete, and/or other agencies as appropriate. Any merit or private scholarships or awards received by a student-athlete must conform to NCAA regulations. Approval of athletics aid will be contingent upon the academic eligibility of the student-athlete.
