Promotional Activities of Student-Athletes
An individual shall not be eligible for participation in intercollegiate athletics if the individual accepts any renumeration for or permits the use of his or her name or picture to advertise, recommend or promote directly the sale or use of a commercial product or service of any kind.
If a student-athlete’s name or picture appears on commercial items (e.g. t-shirts, playing cards, posters, photographs) or is used to promote a commercial product without the student-athlete’s knowledge or permission, the student-athlete and the institution are required to take steps to stop such an activity in order to retain the student-athlete’s eligibility.
All charitable, educational and non-profit promotional activities involving student-athlete must have prior approval from the University Athletic Association. All such events are coordinated through the Goodwill Gator Program.
