The Division I Council has recommended to the Division I Board of Directors that they should adopt an interim policy to govern name, image and likeness until there’s either federal legislation or new NCAA rules.
The proposed guidance that could be adopted by the Board of Directors when they meet Wednesday June 30 is as follows:
- College athletes can engage in NIL activities that are consistent with the law of the state where the school is located. Colleges and universities are responsible for determining whether those activities are consistent with state law.
- Student-athletes who attend a school in a state without a NIL law can engage in this type of activity without violating NCAA rules related to name, image and likeness.
- College athletes can use a professional services provider for NIL activities.
- Student-athletes should report NIL activities consistent with state law or school and conference requirements to their school.
Schools will also be able to adopt their own rules consistent with these guidelines. Divisions II and III are expected to vote on Wednesday as well.
