FAQs

How do I apply for a George Mason University license through IMG College Licensing?

With hundreds of companies already licensed to produce a wide range of products, only those companies that can exhibit a commitment to the collegiate market, have established production and distribution capabilities, and/or offer a new or unique product are typically granted the opportunity to obtain a license. IMG College Licensing’s website has extensive information on collegiate licensing including Licensing Information, Types of Licenses, Timelines and Costs, an Application Request, and NCAA/Bowls/Conferences. Details of the licensing application process are covered, in addition to the financial and resource commitments necessary to successfully maintain a collegiate license. These web pages, combined with this FAQ’s section and IMG College Licensing’s FAQs section, should answer most of the questions that you may have about the licensing process. Additional questions can be directed via email to information@clc.com.

How long does it take to complete the licensing process?

This can vary due to a number of factor. Because the Internal Campus Supplier application process is streamlined, it’s generally much faster. The Standard and Local application processes vary based on the number of institutions being sought. Information on these license types can be found on the License Types page. Generally, the fewer the number of institutions requested, the quicker the application process. As such, IMG College Licensing highly recommends that you only apply for institutions that you are prepared to maximize in the near term. IMG College Licensing strongly recommends that applicants not pursue detailed sales discussions or trade show planning until they fully complete the licensing process. In the spirit of fairness, we cannot accommodate “rush” requests as all requests are treated equally and on a first-come, first-served basis.

We are a retailer interested in carrying Mason products. Do we need to obtain a license in order to offer collegiate product?

If your company only sells finished products and does not produce, alter, repackage, or finish collegiate products in any way, you are not required to have a license. Retailers should ensure that the collegiate products they purchase are produced by licensed vendors, as discerning consumers will not purchase products that appear counterfeit or unlicensed. The current Mason licensee list can be found here and is updated periodically . Retailers that screen or embroider their own products or source the products from an associated company must obtain a collegiate license. Visit the Retailer section of IMG College Licensing’s FAQs page for additional information.
