July 1st, 2021
On June 30, 2021, after months of speculation and waiting, the Division 1 Board of Directors approved an interim name, image and likeness (NIL) policy. As of July 1, 2021, the new policy allowed all NCAA DI, DII and DIII student-athletes to be compensated for their NIL.
This announcement changed the NIL landscape and the future of college sports. When this decision was made it left athletes, schools, parents and even agents scrambling to figure out what being NIL eligible entailed and how to maximize it without jeopardizing athlete eligibility. Since 2021, CleanKonnect has been working with athletes, brands, schools and parents to understand the ins and outs of NIL - and looks to share these learnings in this course.
