Registered student organizations (RSO)
Re-Registration Process, Fall 2016
Michigan State University has over 700 registered Student Organizations; there is something for everyone here at State! RSOs cover a wide range of topics and interest areas, including but not limited to: academic, business, environmental, international, political, racial/ethnic, religious, women’s interests, and sports and leisure.
The Department of Student Life recognizes these organizations with the University through an annual registration process, starting August 1st. Once registered, RSOs can plan and sponsor activities on campus, apply for funding, and participate at events.
