Department of Student Activities & Organizations

The certification process allows each student organization to maintain "Recognized" status with the Office of Student Activities and Organizations. Organizations must certify each academic year by completing the certification process outlined below. This process acknowledges the RSO's practice of appropriate membership and officer selection guidelines. RSO's further acknowledge the purpose and activities of the organization are in compliance with the rules and regulations of Northwestern State University, the national organization (if applicable) as well as local, state, and federal laws and statutes.  All members of the organization must be registered students at Northwestern State University.



Organizations failing to certify by the above deadline will have their recognition and all associated privileges (i.e. room reservations) withdrawn until such time as certification is completed.
