Options for Foreign Student-Athletes on a Non-Immigrant Visa to Get Paid for Endorsements
March 1, 2023
According to USCIS, a student on a visa is, well, a student. Therefore, they should devote their time to studies, not to earning an income. Students aren’t allowed to receive Employment Authorization Documents. They can go to school and perform in after-school activities, such as clubs and sports. This has been a non-issue for most foreign student-athletes on a non-immigrant visa. Yet, the current changes in NCAA policy — the National College Athlete Association — could impact all of this.
