Student athletes may not compete as a member of any outside team in their sport during the
academic year. This includes participating in local city leagues. However, there are
exceptions that allow student athletes to participate on such teams if they are not in-season,

approved by the Compliance Office in advance. Please contact the Compliance Office before
engaging in any sort of outside competition. Violations of this rule could result in the loss of

The OSU Department of Athletics is responsible for the control and conduct of the
intercollegiate athletics program. Once an individual has been identified as an athletic
representative or booster, he/she retains that identity forever and is governed by the same
NCAA, PAC-12, and Oregon State University rules and regulations as our athletic staff
members. A booster is anyone who has promoted Oregon State, is a season ticket holder, is
a member of Our Beaver Nation or any of its associated booster groups, has made financial
contributions to Oregon State, has assisted in the recruitment of prospective student-
athletes, or provided benefits to enrolled student-athletes at Oregon State.
If at any time you have a question concerning benefits, gifts, or services that have been
offered to you, please check with the Compliance Office immediately. Boosters or
institutional staff members are not permitted to provide you with an extra benefit. The term
“extra benefit” refers to any special arrangement by an institutional employee or booster to
provide the student-athlete (or to a relative/friend of the student-athlete) with a benefit not
expressly authorized by NCAA legislation.
