The University of Miami (UM) has contracted with The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC) to coordinate the licensing of all companies interested in producing UM products for commercial use.
Obtaining a license through CLC for one of its member institutions is a process that will require thought, research, and commitment. With more than 2,500 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 will be considered for the opportunity to obtain a license.
The licensing process can vary in length, based on the licensees’ responsiveness in meeting CLC and each institutions’ policies and requests throughout the process. Many licensees can complete the application process within two months, while others may take considerably longer depending on how quickly they meet the requirements. The process is divided into three phases.
Phase I: Complete and submit a CLC licensing application.
Phase II: Submit designs and/or samples incorporating the marks of the institution(s); obtain product liability insurance; purchase CLC holograms per the labeling requirements; complete product specification sheets; and complete Authorized Manufacturer’s Agreement (if applicable).
Phase III: Execute the CLC Standard Retail Product License Agreement and the CLC Special Agreement regarding Labor Codes of Conduct; provide factory site disclosure, and pay all advance and administrative fees.
