Manhattanville faces NCAA sanctions for financial aid violations

According to a report on NCAA.org, Manhattanville faces penalties for failing to monitor its financial aid process, which led to student-athletes receiving more financial aid awards than the general student population.

Penalties in this case include two years of probation from Aug. 7, 2012 through Aug. 6, 2014.

During the 2009-10 academic year, the report states international student-athletes received an average of $8,538 more in financial aid packages than non-student-athletes. Men’s hockey players received an average of $1,730 more than other student-athletes and $9,671 more than non-student-athletes.

Other penalties include public reprimand and censure, attendance at an NCAA Regional Rules Seminar by the vice president of enrollment management, the director of financial aid, the athletics compliance officer and the director of athletics during the probationary period (self-imposed by the college and request of a Level Two review from the NCAA Committee on Financial Aid during both years of the probationary period.

    So no substantive sanctions. Without repercussions, there is no incentive to discontinue the processes, and the hockey coach isn’t required to attend the training??


    Longstanding history of violations supported by a trustee and led by the former coach who got promoted at Athletics Director as violations became apparent. As faculty, we are happy that this has finally surfaced — Athletics has been untouchable so far. But those who orchestrated the violations remain in power. This is what landed the college in trouble in 2008 when we were placed on warning by the Middle States Commission and nearly lost our accreditation. A bold and brave President who arrived in 2009 began to set the college on track and got us through accreditation. But of course, the Athletics Director and other athletics staff made her life hell for two years.
