Requirements to Maintain Active Status

The Office of Student Activities is committed to supporting student organizations with a smooth transition from year to year. The office is available for virtual or in person meetings to help walk through the steps of maintaining recognition, including re-registration through OrgCentral. In order for your organization to remain active with the University, there are several requirements:

  • Update  your officer and membership information via your Student Organization’s OrgCentral page through re-registration. When managing your organization in OrgCentral, if you have not re-registered, you will see a blue button that will walk you through the process. If your organization does not have this option, you have re-registered for this year and have completed this step. This must be completed by September 30, 2021.
  • Attend Mandatory Officer Training - Moving forward, all Mandatory Officer Trainings will take place via Canvas Module

Do you have specific questions regarding the re-registration process in OrgCentral? Check out this Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to get your questions answered.
