The Cal State Fullerton Licensing Program protects and promotes the official trademarks of the University which is an essential part of ensuring the integrity of the CSUF brand. The program includes all registered logos and University name references. Only licensed vendors have rights to utilize campus trademarks on product. This includes product for promotional or resale purposes and applies to internal use (campus departments) and external use (non-campus retailers).
On behalf of the University, Auxiliary Services Corporation (ASC) has registered the university marks and manages the Licensing Program through the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC).
What is a trademark?
All names and visual representations of California State University, Fullerton are considered trademarks. This extends to all wordmarks, service marks, names, name variants, logotypes, logos, shields, seals or other designs or symbols that refer to the University. The trademarked campus logos and name designations are identified with ® and those marks not yet registered are identified with ™. These symbols must appear on campus marks used on products for resale or promotional purposes.
Why do I need to use a licensed vendor?
All on-campus departments, organizations, clubs, or groups who intend to buy or distribute product with the University’s trademarks are responsible for ensuring that the vendor they are ordering from is licensed. Licensed vendors are required to submit all artwork designs for approval through the CLC Brand Manager system. This ensures that artwork meets the brand standards for the university, adhering to proper colors, correct university name references, acceptable logo use, the appropriate trademark indicator is included on logos/names, etc.
