NCAA Injury Surveillance Data Requests

The Datalys Center provides a process for obtaining NCAA de-identified line item data from the NCAA's Injury Surveillance Program.  The process is two-fold. First, researchers are required to fill out an application located on the DISC website (link below). The application allows investigators to outline their research proposals including: specifics aims, statistical methodology, and what specific data they are requesting to access. This application is reviewed by the Datalys Center's Independent Review Committee where it is approved, returned for clarifications, or denied. After approval from the IRC, the application packet is sent to the NCAA for approval. Contingent upon the approval of the NCAA, the datasets are made available to the researchers.


NOTICE: Only medical professionals, graduate students, and doctoral students should request NCAA data from the DISC.All applications should reflect the quality of work expected from these students and professionals as well as clear and specific scientific rationale. Applications from undergraduate students are not being accepted at this time.
