What is the Boise State NIL Exchange?

The Boise State NIL Exchange is a student-athlete NIL business registry, custom-designed for businesses, donors, alumni, and any other interested NIL dollars wishing to connect with student athletes. Registered businesses can search, filter and initiate conversations with Bronco student-athletes to discuss an NIL deal. Once the NIL deal between a registered business and the Bronco student-athlete is completed, the business will use the Boise State NIL Exchange to create a transaction that will produce a direct payment to the student-athlete (without any transaction fee) and automate a disclosure to the INFLCR Verified Compliance Ledger. All transactions within the local exchange are consolidated into one 1099 at the end of the year for easier tax reporting purposes for registered businesses and athletes.


What is Name, Image & Likeness?

As of July 1, 2021, student-athletes competing in NCAA intercollegiate athletics are permitted to receive compensation for the use of their name, image or likeness (NIL) for commercial activities, including endorsements through traditional and social media, appearances, entrepreneurial activities, in-kind deals, autographs and more, in accordance with NCAA guidelines and Boise State University NIL protocols.

Does the state of Idaho have an NIL Law?

No, therefore the NCAA has empowered each department to enact its own NIL policies.

Does the school or INFLCR take any revenue from NIL transactions in the Local Exchange?


Do you have to be an official university licensee to register?

No. The use of marks and logos in NIL opportunities will be overseen by Boise State and Bronco Sports Properties. For more information about co-branding opportunities, please contact Mike Walsh at michaelwalsh1@boisestate.edu or 208-921-7396.

How will I know when I am approved?

You will receive an email from Boise State verifying your approval. Expect this email to arrive within five business days of your registration.  

When can I start contacting athletes and processing payments?

After being approved by Boise State, you will be able to contact athletes and process payments in January 2022.
