The Latest in HBCU Sports and Culture

Alabama A&M placed on probation by NCAA, ineligible for postseason

Alabama A&M is the latest HBCU to find itself in trouble over APR. The NCAA has placed AAMU on one-year probation for insufficient documentation of its APR dating back through 2011.

AAMU is currently banned from participating in postseason play starting this fall. Athletic director Bryan Hicks says that could change, though, as the NCAA is allowing the school to resubmit the information.

“This is not a sanction. The post-season ban potentially can be lifted prior to the 2016-17 fall sports championships if the university corrects and re-submits the necessary data by August 15, 2016,” Hicks said via the athletic department’s website. “We are collaboratively working with the NCAA Division I Committee on Academics Subcommittee on Data, the Compliance Group and university administration to ensure each concern and question is fully addressed. We have also engaged a company with expertise in compliance certification, one that has assisted other SWAC institutions in a similar manner.”
