Frequently Asked Questions - RSO's

Q: How do I start a student organization?

A: Five members are needed to start a club on campus, 3 of which need to be designated President, Treasurer, and Student Event Coordinator. Treasurer and Student Event Coordinator MUST attend an in-person training session. Along with having the minimum number of members, the club must find a Stanislaus State staff or faculty member to be the club's advisor, and create a constitution.

Q: What does it mean to be a recognized student organization (RSO)?

A: Registration is the process you must go through in order to become an officially recognized student organization on campus. Registration for new/current student organizations happens once in the fall and once in the spring of each academic school year. Benefits of becoming a recognized student organization on campus include: a mailbox in the Student Leadership and Development office, your organization will be listed on the web directory, and your organization will be approved to use an account with ASI to charge services in the Student Center and reserve space on campus for free through the 25Live reservation system.
