Register a New RSO

The Associated Student Government (ASG) votes every spring quarter whether or not to approve the newest cohort of RSOs. All new clubs or organizations that complete the registration process prior to the deadline* will become Provisional Student Organizations** (PSO). PSOs are eligible to receive temporary and limited access to privileges in order to have resources to recruit members and raise awareness about the club.

The Provisional Status Student Organization Packet:

  • The "Starting an Organization 101" packet contains all the information you need to know about starting a new RSO.
  • This packet contains a list of privileges offered to PSOs and RSOs, the step-by-step PSO registration process, and additional resources like a sample constitution and contact information for Center for Student Involvemetn (CSI) staff members.
