What is a promotional appearance?
A promotional appearance is an activity in which a student-athlete uses their name, image or likeness to promote the interest of a commercial entity, an educational institution, charitable organization or themselves.
Can student-athletes participate in promotional appearances?
NIL legislation has allowed student-athletes to participate in events and appearances while receiving compensation. The promotional appearance should be reported to the school so that compliance staff can confirm student-athletes may represent themselves and the Institution with the brand hosting the appearance. Prior to the passage of NIL legislation, student-athletes were permissible to participate in promotional activities on behalf of their educational institution or charitable organizations.
