Recognized Student Organizations
Renewing your Organization

The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) reviews the registration of organizations every year during the fall semester in order to renew the recognition status of groups and update the records of approved student organizations on the FHSU campus.  The application to maintain registration for the academic year is to be submitted to the CSI no later the Friday of finals week during the Fall semester.

NOTE:  The Center for Student Involvement must be presented with:

1. A completed Student Organization Application for Renewal Form on Tiger[Link]. All FHSU faculty, staff and students are able to create a Tiger[Link] profile. To do so, follow the Welcome to Tiger[Link] notification; You will be prompted to log-in using your FHSU Tiger Tracks  username and password. Then, enter your first name, last name and FHSU email address. Once these steps are completed, you will be able to create your organization.
Materials you will need include:

  • Name of the organization.
  • A minimum of two (2) officers (President, Treasurer).  Officers must be FHSU enrolled students and meet the 2.0 cumulative GPA requirement each semester -- include current address, phone number, and FHSU ID number.
  • A revised copy of the organizations constitution IF the copy on file is older than 4 years. 
  • Location of funds (FHSU).
  • Name of faculty/staff advisor.
  • Approval from the president, treasurer and the faculty or staff sponsor(s).
  • Agreement by the president of the non-discrimination statement.

2. Submit an alphabetized membership list of all the organization’s members.   To be a recognized student organization, the organization should be comprised of at least five (5) currently enrolled FHSU students (of which include the two officers) who wish to be members in the organization. 80% of the membership or more must be enrolled full-time FHSU students.

3. It is recommended that organizations review their constitutions every four years, submit any changes to CSI for review and a revised copy be filed with CSI.

4. It is expected that each organization strive to complete a minimum of 20 hours of campus/community service per year. Hours are reported to Tigers In Service (TIS) housed in the Center for Civic Leadership.

Applications for registration for the academic year will not be accepted after the Friday of finals week during the Fall semester.

All registered student organizations are expected to comply with the policies of the CSI and Student Organizations Committee and those of the University. 

Questions about the procedures for re-registration of student organizations should be directed to any staff member of the Center for Student Involvement, or send your question to SOC chair Jacob Ternes jaternes@fhsu.edu.
