FSU NCAA Recertification
 
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is a voluntary organization devoted to the sound administration of intercollegiate athletics.
Athletics certification was approved for Division I institutions at the 1993 Convention as a key part of the NCAA's reform agenda. Florida State University is in the second cycle of recertification (the first certification was in 1999).

Athletics certification is meant to ensure the NCAA's fundamental commitment to integrity in intercollegiate athletics. The program is structured to achieve its goal in several ways:
  1. By opening the affairs of athletics to the university community and the public.
  2. By setting standards (called operating principles) for the operation of Division I athletics programs.
  3. By putting tough sanctions in place for institutions that fail to conduct a comprehensive self-study or to correct problems.
