COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri says it is reviewing allegations of possible academic rules violations made by a former tutor in the athletic department.

The university released a statement Tuesday saying the violations were brought by a tutor who worked in the Athletics Academic Services. Missouri says it has also notified the NCAA, which is working with the school on the investigation.

The release did not reveal what the allegations are or which teams might be involved.

Director of athletics Jim Sterk says the university’s “mission is to uphold the highest standard of academic performance and ensure the proper conduct with all of our programs.”
