The NCAA has accused Grambling of major violations that could lead to penalties including limiting scholarships, postseason play and possible probation.
"We don't automatically accept the NCAA's conclusion," Grambling Athletic Director Robert Piper said Tuesday.
The NCAA found eight violations, including a lack of control over its football program headed by Eddie Robinson, college football's winningest coach.
The governing body for college athletics accused the football program of violations ranging from illegal recruiting contacts to coaches holding improper tryouts and practices and offering scholarships in violation of NCAA rules.
The NCAA also alleged that two basketball players received scholarships or practiced while ineligible.
The school recently completed an investigation in which it admitted two rules violations. The university has until Feb. 24 to respond to the charges lodged by the NCAA. The final ruling and penalties will be determined by the Committee on Infractions in April.

Slugger Tony Perez, passed over for the sixth time in voting for the Hall of Fame, was so frustrated that he wondered if it's because he is a Latino.
"I never wanted to be controversial about racial stuff, but this thing has me thinking," said Perez, a Florida Marlin executive who was part of the Cincinnati Reds' pennant winning teams in 1975 and 1976.
"It might be just because my last name is Perez. I'm not only speaking for myself. What about Luis Tiant, Dave Concepcion, Tony Oliva and all the other guys? They just ignore us."
Voting is done by the Baseball Writers' Assn. of America.
