Activate your Organization
Our Annual Process
Activate Your Org is the process that all recognized student organizations go through once a year to maintain their active status. This process includes steps such as completing the online registration on Get Involved, reflecting the current officer positions and membership roster, updating the organization governing documents, and completing the Advisor Agreement Form. Each organization’s president and one other officer are required to complete the annual training in D2L (live on August 1, 2022) and the Hazing Prevention Training (live all year round).
President’s Leadership Retreat
Each organization’s president is required to attend our (in person) President’s Leadership
Retreat. This year the retreat will be held on Saturday, August 27th from 9am-2pm on
Millersville’s campus. Registration will open on August 1, 2022.
Activate Your Org opens on April 1st, 2022. Here are the step-by-step instructions of the activation process.
Student Organization Status
Student Organizations have different status titles within the Department of Campus Life. Student organizations should always know what status they have in our office and what abilities they have at any given time.
Active – Student organizations who have completed all of the requirements to date are granted full services. During the Activate Your Org process (roughly April 1 to September 16) all student organizations are considered active. After the Activate Your Org deadline of September 15, student organization status may change depending on whether they completed the Activate Your Org process.
Locked – Student organizations become locked when they have not begun their online registration process or have started but not finished by the deadline of September 15. These organizations are denied all services by the University. Student Orgs that were able to begin their online registration before the deadline, but did not compete it, can access their registration at any time to do so.
Frozen – These student organizations were active but have committed some type of infraction. These organizations might have an outstanding bill with the University or Student Services, Inc. They may also not be in good standing with the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards. Frozen organizations will become active again after paying their outstanding bills and/or completing their required probation time and/or requirements.
Inactive – Organizations become inactive when they fail to register and/or have been locked for two consecutive years. These organizations are denied all services. Inactive orgs need to go through the same SGA chartering process as a new organization goes in order to become active again.
