Clemson student-athletes,  prospective student-athletes, and their friends and family members cannot receive extra benefits.  Extra benefits are special arrangements provided to student-athletes and their family members based off their status as a student-athlete.   If a discount, service, or benefit is not generally available to all members of the public or all members of the general student population, then it is considered an extra benefit.

Examples of extra benefits include, but are not limited to:

HOW DOES EXTRA BENEFITS WORK WITH THE NEW NAME, IMAGE & LIKENESS RULES?

If a student-athlete receives benefits in exchange for their NIL, there must be an actual quid pro quo that occurs.  This means the student-athlete must do something in exchange for the benefits to ensure it is not an NCAA violation.  Also, state law requires the student-athlete to disclose all NIL deals to university officials to ensure there is no impact on their eligibility for competition.

Please continue to Ask Before You Act to avoid any extra benefits.  Feel free to contact Clemson University Athletics Compliance Services at cuacs@clemson.edu.
