Student Organization Requirements

Fall Deadline Extended

Due to a delay in the Org Finance Training module update, the deadline for fall requirements has been extended to Friday, October 29. This includes: Officer Orientation module, Financial Training module, and the Advsior Meeting (if applicable).  

Organizations that fail to complete any of the requirements will be considered inactive and will need to go through the new student organization formation process to be considered for reinstatement as an active organization.  Track your organization's progress on our Org Requirement Tracker. Note that the tracker updates are generally made 1-2 times daily, Monday through Friday. Please allow at least one full business day for completion of  a requirement to be reflected. 

Org Requirement Tracker

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.

Online Training Modules

All registered student organizations must complete three online training modules in order to remain registered and retain eligibility for funding, space reservations, and more. The president (or equivalent position) and at least one other officer must complete the modules. These online modules serves as an overview of available resources and provides information about policies and processes that are critical to every organization.

Due Friday, October 29:

Due Mid-March:

  • Title IX at GW - Link coming soon!
    This module provides a basic overview of Title IX policies and relevant resources for students. Officers may also complete this requirement by attending a Title IX-related training or workshop offered by an approved campus office. Please email [email protected] if you'd like to have an alternative training considered.

Fall Advisor Meeting (if applicable)

If your organization has an assigned Staff Advisor, you must schedule time with that staff member to hold the Fall Advisor Meeting. This meeting is an opportunity to set expectations and discuss goals and needs for the year. If your organization is assigned to Org Help, you do not need to schedule a meeting. Meeting must be completed by Friday, October 29.
