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.
