August 24th – September 18th
Each year, RSOs are required to re-register with the Office of Student Activities. The purpose of Re-Registration is to ensure that organizations are aware of policies and procedures, have updated their ‘Cuse Activities portal, and are prepared for the upcoming academic year. All of the steps listed below must be completed by Friday, September 18 at 5:00 PM. If these steps are completed by that date, you will have completed Re-Registration successfully and will continue operating as an RSO. Please review the steps below. If you have any questions, contact Matt Shaler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Update & Renew ‘Cuse Activities portal
- Each organization must submit their re-registration form on ‘Cuse Activities. This can be found under the ‘Manage’ section (step by step instructions can be found here).
- The membership list must be updated. This includes adding any new members, deleting or moving any non-members to a different group (i.e. ‘Alumni’), and updating current officer titles. Organizations are required to take a screenshot before and after updating their member list. The screenshots are to be submitted to Matt Shaler via e-mail at email@example.com.
- The Advisor Contract must be completed. This contract is automatically sent via email to your advisor’s email. It may go into a spam/junk folder, or the advisor may not know what it is. Be sure to let your advisor know to expect this email. Your portal/profile cannot be approved without a completed advisor contract.
- Please note: If the organization updates/renews the portal over the summer, it will not count towards Re-Registration. However, it will make it easier for the organization to then submit a renewal request in the fall.
- The president of the organization must complete the four online Officer Training modules through HotSpot
- These modules can be found here.
- There are four quizzes – one associated with each module.
- The president of the organization must earn a 100 on the quizzes for them to count.
- Each module has a link that will direct you to a quiz on either Google Forms or Qualtrics.
3. Leadership Workshops (Dates/Times/Locations below)
- The president and one E-Board member must each attend a leadership workshop. Members are encouraged to attend separate workshops rather than attending the same one. Members are welcome to attend more than one.
- The Fall Kick Off, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, August 29, 2020, counts for 2 workshop credits. This means that if the president OR an e-board member attends, the re-registration requirement will be met.
