Please note that all agents, attorneys, marketing representatives, brand managers, etc. must be registered with the state of Louisiana. In addition to their state registration, such individuals must also register with the LSU Compliance Office. Please find links below:
As a reminder, representation for any purpose other than for the marketing of your NIL will jeopardize your athletics eligibility. If you intend to remain eligible for intercollegiate athletics, any representation by an agent, attorney, marketing representative, brand manager, etc. should be limited to the marketing of your NIL. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the compliance office if you have any specific questions.
Student-athletes’ compensation for use of NIL rights will not affect their scholarship but has the potential to affect their state and/or federal financial aid. These grants may be awarded based on financial need and the criteria for available need-based grants can be found here. Student-athletes with questions about need-based financial aid are encouraged to reach out to the Louisiana State University Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships.
Student-athletes should also seek tax assistance for any NIL compensation earned. Student-athletes should note that taxable compensation might include any tangible and intangible items given in exchange for use of the student-athlete’s name, image, and likeness.
Opportunities for international students to earn NIL compensation may be limited by their student-visa requirements. Prior to engaging in any NIL compensation, international student-athletes should seek clarification from the Louisiana State University International Services Office.
