USM on Probation

Updated 8 years ago

The N-C-A-A has cited the University of
Southern Maine for violations in a work-study fraud case involving
37 student-athletes in 15 sports.
The fraud, which occurred during the 2003-2004 academic year,
resulted in more than ten-thousand dollars in overpayments to
students, some of whom received money for work they didn’t perform.
The N-C-A-A Division-Three Committee on Infractions placed U-S-M
on probation for two years and imposed other penalties. The case
was resolved without a hearing after the university, the N-C-A-A
enforcement staff and involved parties agreed about the facts.
Two members of U-S-M’s athletics staff during the period in
question – an assistant work-study coordinator and an
administrative assistant – were cited for unethical conduct.
University spokesman Bob Caswell declined to identify the
individuals, who were suspended without pay for one week and given
warnings and reprimands.
