Login to Student Organization Management

Training completion is part of the annual registration requirements for all active student organizations during the registration window. Trainings are an opportunity for presidents, treasurers and advisors to learn about requirements, responsibilities and resources available to registered and active student organizations.

Training requirements:

  • Presidents and Treasurers must complete two trainings annually during the registration window:
     
    • The online training module can be accessed in the Student Organization Management System. It is recommended to complete the online module before attending the in-person training session. Presidents and Treasurers each have their own module to complete when they login to the management system. The module covers basic information about the expectations of the role, the registration process, and some related resources.
       
    • Live training is also required for both key roles. Presidents and Treasurers each have their own live/Zoom training session to attend. Sign up for one session below. The sessions are one-hour in length and go more in-depth than the online module.
       
  • Advisors complete training every 2 years, either live or via online module based on eligibility. If it is an advisor's first time working with a student organization or it's been more than two years since their last training attendance, they must complete training in a live session. Sign up for a session below. Once an advisor attends the live training, they will be eligible to re-certify their training two years later via an online module in the Student Organization Management System.

Note: It is important that the organization's roster in the Student Organization Management System is updated with the correct names of the individuals who need the training credit. The President/Primary Leader has access to update the roster. For help, contact our team at csls@osu.edu.


Your training timeline:

It is recommended to attend training during your organization's registration window (Autumn Registration Window: August 15 - October 30 and Spring Registration Window: February 1 - April 15) to avoid impacts to your organization's status. Trainings completed after the registration deadline/outside of your registration window will count toward restoring Active status, but will not count toward maintaining continuous registration. Presidents, treasurers and advisors need to complete training in their selected registration window to maintain continuous registration status.

If you find that your leadership transition timeline is out of sync with attending training, meaning you wait many months after starting your leadership position before attending training, your organization may benefit from changing registration windows. Request an appointment with a Student Organization Success Coach to consult on your registration and transition timeline.


If you have questions about accessiblity or wish to request accommodations please contact the student organizations team at csls@osu.edu, Typically, two weeks notice will allow us to meet your needs.


Save the Date for Fall Training Sessions

Below are the upcoming fall training sessions. Registration for trainings is now open.

This year Primary Leader and Treasurer training will be the same presentation. There will be Primary Leaders and Treasurers in each session however, the Primary Leader and Treasurer from each organization do not have to attend the same session as each other. Advisors will still have their own training session. The dates for the fall sessions are below.


Available training sessions:

Live/Zoom training sessions are posted below. The trainings posted are only relevant for the current registration window and will be updated each semester.

Please be aware that any sessions dated after the registration deadline (October 30 or April 15, respectively), are considered make-up sessions. If the organization falls to Inactive status for any period of time, the registration continuity for that organization breaks, which resets the status back to Active New/Re-established I when Active status is restored.

In-person President, Treasurer and Advisor Trainings are 60 minutes in length. Attendance for the full session is required and is recorded to verify completion.
