Retail Licensing

We Change Lives

Anyone seeking to produce McNeese branded items for retail sales or direct sales to the university will need to obtain one of the following licenses with our licensing partner, CLC. The application packet and more information can be found on CLC’s website

The following licenses are available through CLC. 

  • Internal Campus Supplier – The Internal Campus Supplier (ICS) Agreement allows a company to produce merchandise bearing McNeese trademarks for university departments and official university groups for internal use only. (i.e., T-shirts for groups and organizations, identity materials like letterhead and business cards, campus signage, etc.) This license is royalty exempt. 
  • Standard License – The Standard License is intended for companies that are capable of extensive production and retail distribution of their product(s) and/or are introducing a unique and commercially viable product to the collegiate market. This license is royalty-bearing. 

Crafter’s License Program

A crafter is defined as an individual producing handcrafted items in the home with collegiate marks and selling/distributing to individual consumers via events or direct sales.

In addition, no more than 500 units may be sold per year and less than $2,500 total sales per year of products bearing any McNeese logo or trademark. Sales will be permitted on a wholesale basis or to a third-party retailer but must be pre-approved by the University. 

  • $100 annual administrative fee 
  • Sample/design required 
  • Royalties waived
