NCAA Membership Financial Reporting System

Member institutions submit financial data detailing operating revenues and expenses related to its intercollegiate athletics program to the NCAA on an annual basis. The financial data are subject to agreed-upon procedures performed by a qualified independent accountant annually for DI members, at least every three years for DII members and voluntarily for DIII members. Institutions that provide data will see it populated in the NCAA Institutional Performance Program (IPP) in the spring. IPP allows institutions to not only view their data, but allows schools to compare and benchmark their data with other groups of institutions and peers.

We have provided the Excel-based version as a supplemental tool to assist in the collection of data. As always, the NCAA will maintain its policy of not releasing information submitted by individual institutions; only the aggregate results by NCAA division will be released. The Membership Financial Reporting System is available beginning September 15 and will remain open through January 15, accessible via single-source sign-on access. When the submission deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the deadline will be extended to the next business day. Users will be required to have single-source sign-on access allowing institutions to assign individuals to the system. To access instructions for single-source sign on, select the appropriate link below:
