  • If an RSO misses the May 1st deadline OR fails to complete any of the phases during the Spring re-registration process, they will be required to go through the Prospective Student Organization process at the beginning of the Fall semester if they choose to register for that academic year. Organizations will only be eligible to register as a Tier 1 or Tier 2 organization and will not receive access to funding or 25Live until mid-semester, pending approval.
  • If an organization is inactive for an entire academic year, they will have to go through the Prospective Student Organization process in the following Fall.

  • If both the Treasurer and President do not complete the trainings before June 15th, the organization will be considered unregistered for the 2017-2018 Academic Year
  • Information can be found here on the: three tier classification system. The three tiers will determine what kind of training sessions, room reservation capabilities, and funding access RSO’s will have, depending on what your needs are.
  • Each organization must have a constitution with all required elements that appear in the Constitution Guidelines.
  • The roster for each organization must be updated on GetConnected with every current member who is an active George Mason student.
