Employment Of Student-Athletes
The NCAA's member institutions voted to pass Proposition 62, which will allow student-athletes receiving a full scholarship to receive earnings from legitimate employment, provided the student-athlete has completed one full academic year at Florida State, and is academically eligible for competition. Thus, freshmen and transfers will not be allowed to work during the academic year. Before the student-athlete is allowed to work, a written statement must be signed by the employer, student-athlete, and the Compliance Office stating:
The Florida State Athletic Department can assist you in obtaining employment. Please contact Assistant Athletic Director Guy Morgan at 644-2547. If you are an employer and wish to employ student-athletes, please, contact the Office of Compliance at 644-4272 before engaging in any employment opportunity with a student-athlete. As an employer, you should be aware of the following "do not's" regarding employment.
