Alabama State University announced Friday that it has officially been taken off National Collegiate Athlete Association probation.

In a letter received today from the NCAA’s assistant director of its Committee on Infractions (James A. Elworth) to ASU’s president, Dr. William H. Harris, Elworth informed Harris that the probationary period the committee imposed on ASU (Dec. 10, 2008, case M252) officially expired on Dec. 9.

“As of this date, the institution (ASU) has been restored to the full rights and privileges of NCAA membership,” Elworth wrote.

ASU’s president responded that it is in full compliance with the rules and expectations of the NCAA, and said it was an important moment for ASU.

“We consider this a milestone in the university’s relationship with the NCAA and we have committed considerable resources to insuring that we remain in good standing with the NCAA,” Harris said.
