NCAA Rules Governing Student-Athlete Employment

Student-athletes are now permitted to earn legitimate on- and off-campus employment income during the regular academic year as well as during the university's official vacation periods and the summer.

A "representative of athletics interests" is permitted to intercede on behalf of an enrolled student-athlete who is looking to secure employment.

  • The student-athlete may not receive any renumeration for the value or utility that the student-athlete may have for the employer because of the publicity, reputation, fame or personal following he or she has obtained because of athletics ability.
  • The student-athlete is compensated only for work actually performed and at a rate commensurate with that received by similarly situated employees (e.g., part-time, seasonal) performing the same or similar work.

The Compliance Office is required to approve and monitor student-athlete employment. If you are employing a student-athlete, you will be asked to sign the written statement prior to the student beginning employment. In addition, you may be asked to provide information on their earnings.
