On Campus Marketing of Credit Cards to Students

Pursuant to Article 129-A Section 6437 of the New York State Education Law, Long Island University prohibits the advertising, marketing, or merchandising of credit cards on campus to students. This includes advertising or solicitation at campus vendor tables, as well as posting or distribution of applications, fliers, posters, handbills and signage (electronic and otherwise) on University premises. The University’s e-mail system or website may not be used for advertising or solicitation of credit cards to students. Banks, credit unions and other businesses approved to be present at student orientations and other campus activities may not provide credit card applications to students during those events. In addition, no campus employee, student group, or department may accept financial support or other goods and services from credit card issuers or vendors in exchange for allowing them to market credit cards to students.
