Frequently Asked Questions for Students

Are there any requirements for student organization constitutions?
Yes. USA requires that all registered organizations maintain two clauses as part of their local organization's constitutions or chapter bylaws. The two required clauses are the non-discrimination and the audit clause. These clauses can all be found in the sample constitution and must be included in every registered organization's constitution exactly as written in the template provided. Organizations may establish guidelines that go above and beyond what is stated in each of these clauses but organizations may not contradict them in any way in their constitution.
When is "Get On Board Day"?
“Get on Board Day” occurs within the first weeks of the fall semester. Emails will be sent out in the summer regarding the date and how to reserve a table for your student organization.
Why does my student organization have to re-register every year?
Re-registration is important because it enables the Office of Student Activities and the University to maintain up-to-date contact information for your organization. We receive calls from many people such as USA students looking to get involved looking into what involvement opportunities are available at USA before choosing to come here.

Another reason we require groups to re-register is so that we can update organizations on policies that may have changed or fill new officers in on policies affecting student organizations which they may not have been aware of..
How can I find out  my organization's Jag number?
