AUTOGRAPHS & DONATED ITEMS

Due to an extremely high volume of requests, the athletics department does not grant requests for donations of equipment, apparel or other products.

All autograph requests must be facilitated through the Compliance Office and LSU Sport Shop. Requests cannot be accepted by Marketing, Sports Information, the Ticket Office, individual sport offices or any other athletics department entity.

Student-athletes may provide autographs at preseason “Fan Days” and other sanctioned promotional events. However, these autographs must not be sold or traded for money or any item of value as this could jeopardize the eligibility of the involved student-athlete.

Autographed items of coaches may be requested/purchased below.

APPEARANCE REQUEST – STUDENT-ATHLETES

All requests for LSU student-athlete appearances must be made through the CHAMPS Life Skills program and the Compliance Office.

Per NCAA regulations, appearances may only be granted to educational, charitable and non-profit organizations, and the following conditions apply:

(a) Student-athletes may not miss class time for appearances;
(b) All monies derived from the appearance must go directly to the charitable, educational or non-profit agency;
(c) Student-athletes may only accept actual and necessary expenses related to their participation in the activity (and these expenses must be documented); and
(d) The appearance may not involve co-sponsorship, advertisement or promotion by a commercial agency other than through the reproduction of the sponsoring organization’s officially registered regular trademark or logo on printed materials such as pictures, posters or calendars.

The Compliance Office reviews all student-athlete appearance requests on a case-by-case basis and will grant or deny appearances based on the specific circumstances of each request. Additionally, due to academic and athletic obligations, LSU gives preference to community service events that occur in the Baton Rouge area.

LSU student-athletes perform numerous community service events and enjoy community involvement. When possible our student-athletes are excited to participate, but please understand that not all requests will be approved. LSU Athletics does not approve community service events during concentrated study periods and/or midterms/ finals week of any term. Also, please note that due to academic and athletic obligations, LSU gives preference to community service events that occur in the Baton Rouge area. In addition, all student-athlete appearance requests must be submitted at least three weeks prior to the event in order to be considered. Please see below to see the process in which the request is reviewed. 

Step 1: Review the NCAA guidelines for appearances, and make sure your event meets these guidelines.

Step 2: Enter information regarding the request using the link titled “STUDENT-ATHLETE APPEARANCE REQUEST FORM.” The more details included about the event, the better. Once the form is completed, click submit. 

Step 3: The compliance office will receive the request and make sure that all NCAA regulations are met. Applications which are NCAA compliant will be forwarded for processing by the Shaquille O’Neal Life Skills Program Office.

Step 4: The Shaquille O’Neal Life Skills Program Office will review the request and work to secure student-athletes for the event. Do note that this does not guarantee student-athlete participation as there may be scheduling conflicts. 

Step 5: At least five days prior to the event, the event contact listed on the form will be notified by a member of the Shaquille O’Neal Life Skills Program Office if the appearance request will be granted. If you have any questions during this process, please contact Courtney Randall, Director of the Shaquille O’Neal Life Skills Program at (225) 578-5934, or via e-mail at lifeskills@lsu.edu.
