No off-campus individual or organization may distribute literature, advertise, solicit customers, recruit volunteers, employees or members, seek donations, or make sales on campus without sponsorship by a registered student organization and approval by the President or Dean of Student Affairs.
Alabama State Board Policy 515.01 - Agents, Vendors, and Solicitation
- An agent, vendor or solicitor shall not be permitted on campus to distribute literature, solicit funds, or sell to faculty, staff, students, or campus organizations without specific approval by the President or an authorized designee.
- An agent, vendor, or solicitor will not be allowed on campus to sell merchandise or services to students except when sponsored by a student organization. Sponsorship by a student organization involves bearing the responsibility for the reputation of the vendor. Sponsorship by a student organization also involves the requirement of student participation in the actual selling as well as ensuring that the sponsoring student organization receives a significant portion of the receipts from sales. Charitable, tax-exempt organizations will be considered on an individual basis.
- On-campus solicitation or other solicitations originated by students to raise funds for institution-related activities may be permitted only with prior approval of the President or appropriate Dean. Solicitation for non-institutional related activities shall not be permitted on campus except with the approval of the President or designee.
