FHSU Licensing Program
Fort Hays State University operates a licensing program to provide legal protection for its identity marks. To protect the university’s image, and to protect the university from liability, Fort Hays State University has implemented a program that establishes ownership and regulates the use of its name and other identity marks.
Though all royalty fees have been discontinued in order to encourage wide dissemination of our image, all businesses are still required to become licensed by submitting an agreement and paying a $50 annual fee, acknowledging FHSU’s ownership of its marks.
