Student Organization Requirements

Update Engage Profile 

At the start of each academic year, every organization must update its profile information and officers in Engage. This will ensure your organization receives regular updates and important information throughout the year. Organizations that fail to complete this process may miss vital communications about resources, policies, and registration requirements.

Fall Officer Orientation and Advisor Meeting

All registered student organizations must complete an online Fall Officer Orientation module annually in order to remain registered and retain eligibility for funding, space reservations, and more. The president (or equivalent position) and one other officer must complete the orientation. This online module serves as an orientation to available resources and provides information about policies and processes that are critical to every organization.

Five Excellence in Leadership Sessions (ELS)

All student organizations must complete five Excellence in Leadership Sessions by the annual student organization registration deadline in order to remain an active student organization. One session must be a Title IX designated session. View the schedule on the Engage events tab. Tip: Log in and filter by category to view the full ELS schedule.

New on-demand options to fit any schedule: In addition to the live virtual workshops, your organization can now access two online modules at any time. Click the module titles and log in with your GW NetID to get started.

Spring Registration

All student organizations that wish to continue operating the next school year must complete the annual spring requirements. These requirements include:

  • Completing the Engage registration form 
  • Completing five ELS workshops or modules (one being Title IX-related)
  • Updating your constitution, ensuring it has the four required clauses 
  • Submitting a SA budget request (optional)

SA Budget Request (optional)

NEW THIS YEAR: Another budget request process will open at the start of fall 2021. We hope this will provide a more flexible budgeting process in light of the unknowns for in-person events and operations next year.

Please contact the SA Finance Committee with any budget questions.
