Organization Renewal

Each year, in the Spring Semester, all student organizations must renew their status with the Office of Student Involvement in order to remain in good standing.

Renewal is pertinent as it confirms the organization's officers, advisor, and status with the university. This process also qualifies your organization to submit budget requests during our Early Fall Budget Request period which occurs in the summer. This Early Fall Budget Request period is the only way to obtain Student Activity Budget funding for the first four weeks of classes.

Maintaining Your Organization's Recognition

Attend SOLE

Our Student Organization Leadership Education (SOLE) training is an annual training required for student organization leaders. The one-day training is set up as a conference-style event with sessions including MyEngage Basics, Budgets & Bills, Marketing Your Leadership Skills, Planning Events, and more! Important things to note about this event:

  • This year's SOLE will be Saturday, August 28th, 2021 from 10:00am-3:00pm.
  • All student organization presidents and treasurers are required to attend this training. If the president or treasurer are not able to go, another officer or member of the organization must go in their place. no matter what, each RSO must have at least two representatives attend.
  • All attendees must stay for the entire day -- they cannot leave early or they will need to attend the SOLE makeup session. 
  • Register and find out more information about this event on the event's page in MyEngage!

Student Organization Funding

UMSL's Registered Student Organizations have four options when it comes to funding.

  1. Student Activity Budget Committee (SABC) budget allocations.
  2. Off-Campus Student Organization bank account where dues and other funding sources are stored.
  3. Money that has been fundraised and deposited into a University Fundraising Account (most student organizations do not have a fundraising account assigned to them).
  4. Money donated or gifted to the student organization that has been deposited into a University Gift Account (most student organizations do not have a gift account assigned to them).

If you have questions regarding Student Organization Fundraising or Gift Accounts please reach out to Michaela Wells (
