    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who needs to register? 

    All MSUM student organization officers and advisors must complete the appropriate step(s) to properly register themselves and their student organization. The registration process applies to both currently recognized MSUM student organizations and pending student organizations. 

    Why does our student organization need to register? 

    Your student organization is required to register each fall to renew your recognition status with the University. 

    What if our student organization does not register? 

    Any student organization that fails to register by the deadline will be considered defunct, losing all Recognition Privileges. 

    Who should we contact if we are having problems or if we have a question?
