Agent Registration Info
It is the policy of Northwestern Athletics to discourage any contacts between an agent seeking to represent a Northwestern student-athlete in contract negotiations with a professional sports team or as a professional athlete unless the agent: (i) registers with the State of Illinois pursuant to the Uniform Athlete Agents Act, (ii) provides Northwestern Athletics with documentation proving he or she has registered with the State of Illinois, and (iii) registers with Northwestern Athletics by completing the Northwestern University Athlete Agent Registration Form.
