    NCAA National Study on Collegiate Wagering

    In the interests of protecting the health and well-being of the hundreds of thousands of student-athletes who participate in college sports, NCAA research studies the behaviors of student-athletes – including behaviors that could put student-athletes at risk – in order for NCAA members to develop legislation, educational policies and best practices that enhance student-athletes’ experiences in college.

    One of those behaviors is gambling. The NCAA has had bylaws restricting sports wagering for many years because leaders in college sports believe sports wagering not only threatens the integrity of the game but also is an entry point into other behaviors that may compromise student-athlete health and well-being.

    The NCAA has conducted studies on student-athlete gambling behavior every four years since 2004. The most recent in 2016 surveyed more than 22,000 current college athletes across all three NCAA divisions about their attitudes toward and engagement in various gambling activities, including sports wagering. A summary of findings and detailed slides that examine the trends from 2004 to 2016 are also available.
