Student Organizations
Section 200: Recognized Student Organizations (RSO)
Effective: September 5, 2013
Revised: May 4, 2016


RSOs are autonomous student organizations that contribute to student learning and are critical to the mission and culture of OSU; operate under a Tax Identification Number registered to their specific organization; and are legally separate entities from Oregon State University.  RSOs are responsible for legal compliance, fiscal accountability and maintaining student organization policy and community standards, including ensuring member adherence to the Student Conduct Code and any University agreements.

RSOs are provided access to resources, education and development through SLI’s student organization program and may enter into annual or activity sponsorship agreements with OSU departments to gain access to department-controlled resources.
