Intercollegiate Athletic Program
The Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act (EADA) is intended to make prospective students aware of a school's commitment to providing equitable athletic opportunities for its men and women students. Any coeducational school of higher education that participates in an FSA program and has an intercollegiate athletic program must prepare an annual EADA report. The report contains participation rates, financial support, and other information on men and women's intercollegiate athletic programs. Officially, it is The Report on Athletic
Program Participation Rates and Financial Support Data. It is commonly referred to as the EADA Report.
By October 15 each year, a co-educational school that has an intercollegiate athletic program must make information about the program available to current and prospective students and to the public. The school must make the report easily accessible to students, prospective students, and the public and must provide the report promptly to anyone who requests it. The school must provide notice to all enrolled students and prospective students of their right to request the report. If the school chooses to make this report available by posting the disclosure on an Internet website or an Intranet website, it must provide in the notice the exact electronic address at which the report is posted, a brief description of the report, and a statement that the school will provide a paper copy of the report upon request. For prospective students, the school may not use an Intranet website for this purpose.
Schools must submit their Equity in Athletics reports to the Department via the Athletic Disclosure Web site annually within 15 days of making them available to students, prospective students, and the public.
The school must designate its reporting year. A reporting year may be any consecutive 12-month period of time. For its designated reporting year, a school must report the information contained in 34 CFR 668.47.
The report must include, for the preceding year:
- The number of male and the number of female full-time undergraduates enrolled
