NCAA D1 Council Adopts Interim NIL Policy

The DI Council has voted to adopt an interim NIL policy. The provisions below have not gotten final approval, but approval is expected. The policy provides the following guidance. What could possibly go wrong (Hint: notice the word “should” in number 5)?

1. College athletes can engage in NIL activities that are consistent with the law of the state where the school is located.

2. Colleges and universities are responsible for determining whether those activities are consistent with state law.
3. 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.

4. College athletes can use a professional services provider for NIL activities.

5. Student-athletes should report NIL activities consistent with state law or school and conference requirements to their school.
