Every student organization is required to complete the annual student organization registration process by the fall semester deadline or within a week of becoming a recognized student organization. In addition, anytime throughout the year when new officers are elected or advisors change, the organization President (or equivalent) is required to submit those changes to the Office of Student Activities. This ensures that the online public student organization database has up to date information.
The 2014-2015 Annual Student Organization Registration Deadline is Friday, September 19, 2014 or within a week of becoming a recognized student organization if newly recognized. The process includes 3 steps:
All organization officers (including the President) need to complete the Step 1 Form by logging into this site. *Note: If you are a member of more than one student organization, you only need to complete the Step 1 Form once. In addition, all officers are required to have a mnstate email account and be a registered MSUM student. The OSA will only contact your student organization through a mnstate email account.
All organization advisors need to complete the Step 2 Form by logging into this site.*Note: If you are an advisor for more than one student organization, you only need to complete the Step 2 Form once. In addition, all advisors must be a current MSUM faculty/staff member. The OSA will only contact you through a mnstate email account.
After each organization officer and advisor complete their respective Step 1 Form and Step 2 Form, the organization President (or equivalent) must finish the registration process (or submit updates during the year) by completing the Step 3 Form. You will need to know each officer's and advisor's name, role, and MSUM email address. You will also be asked questions such as the organization's website, social media sites, meeting days or times, number of active members, and how one can join your organization. After completing this form, the OSA will email you, your officers, and advisors a confirmation that the registration process has been completed or that the updates have been received. Here is a link to the Step 3 Form.
