Student Organization Tier System

The tiered system of student organizations (Tiers I, II, and III) was created by the Center for Student Engagement and Inclusion in 2021 to establish distinctions between different types of student organizations based on their variety of purposes and financial responsibilities.

Tier-III Non-Funded Student Organizations provide an opportunity for students with a common interest, which wish to meet regularly, and affiliate as an organization. These student organizations are low-risk, not eligible for funding support, and do not have events. Tier-III student organizations are permitted meeting space requests on campus and utilize the Student Engagement and Inclusion Coordinator for general advisement.

Tier-III Non-Funded Student Organizations require:

  • President, Secondary Officer
  • Constitution (no more than 2 years old)
  • Completion of General Officer training requirements (Module 1 & 2 Only)
  • Access to the Student Organization Suite including the ability to request a locker
  • Student organization mailbox
  • Support from CSEI Staff
  • Ability to reserve and use campus facilities
  • Full access to Campus Groups amenities:
    • Build website for organization
    • Create forms and surveys for your officers and members
    • Advertisement through group portal

Tier-II Funded Student Organizations are groups of students with a common interest, regularly, and affiliate as an organization. These organizations may participate in activities on and off campus, host or attend events or competitions, are eligible to request SGA supportive funding and require a larger degree of structure and advisement.

 

Tier-II Funded Student Organizations require:

  • President, Treasurer, Third Primary Officer, Faculty/Staff Advisor
  • Constitution (updated yearly)
  • 7 additional general members
