Office 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.

  • 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 concerning such topics as alcohol, hazing, drug, and so forth. 
  • More information is available within the RSO manual found under FILES on Orgsync. 
  • All members of the organization must be registered students at Northwestern State University.

 

DEADLINE TO CERTIFY: SEPTEMBER 14 of each year

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to certify by the above deadline will have their recognition and all associated privileges (i.e. room reservations) withdrawn until such time as certification is completed.
