RSO Renewal

Snowy Range Mountains

RSO Recognition Process

The recognition process takes place on an annual basis and becoming recognized allows student organizations access to certain benefits of the institution -- access to space, ability to request funding, support, etc. The three basic requirements for the annual recognition process are as follows:

  1. Registering the organization through UW Connect;

  2. Verifying there is a full-time faculty/staff member servicing in capacity of advisor for the group through an advisor agreement;

  3. Completing a required training component online or in person.

All items should be completed by the specified deadline as outlined below. If you're wanting to start a new organization, please visit our 'Forming an RSO' page.

The deadline to complete all recognition requirements is November 2, 2019. RSOs who are looking to be funded by ASUW or have an event on UW Connect need to complete all requirements before their event date.

Advisor Agreements

Per UW Regulation 11-4, RSOs are required to have at least one (1) full-time faculty or staff member act as an advisor to the RSO. As part of this requirement, the CAC requires verification of employment and that the advisor agrees to serve as advisor. Advisor Agreements are available here.

Registering your Organization

1) An RSO Officer must complete the registration on UW Connect. Registration opens Monday, August 19th and will remain open until Friday, November 2.

a. A guide to help you with this process is available here and here.
b. Please note that whichever officer completes this process is listed as the primary organization contact for the upcoming year. More info on that here.
c. Information to have on hand to complete registration:

- Names and UWYO email addresses of the four (4) required officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer) and at least three (3) other student members
- Phone numbers for the President and Vice President
- Name, phone number, and UWYO email address of the RSO full time faculty/staff advisor
