Summary: 2010-2011 Registered Organization Process
The Office of Registered Organizations has implemented several changes regarding the registration
process for organizations beginning Fall 2010. Please review the following to make sure that your
organization is fully aware of all changes and doesn't lose out on any benefits to being an RO/RSO at the
University of Illinois.
ON-LINE REGISTRATION PROCESS
The Office of Registered Organizations requires that all prospective and existing organizations register
through our online CollegiateLink database.
· Only the President/Primary Contact may apply for registration
The primary contact must be the president and no other member of that organization.
· The President/Primary Contact will need to provide the contact information for at least 5 members
of the organization, including themselves, the treasurer and persons deemed "authorized agents 1,
2 and 3".
How this is different: In the past, an organization only provided the contact information for 2 members
(the president and treasurer) when submitting the registration application. Now you are required to provide
information for 5 members (including the president and treasurer).
Why was this change made: Running a registered organization is not easy. And what we found was that
many times 2 persons would start an RSO with the intent that it will grow in membership but
unfortunately, this was not always the case and the founders would easily get burned out, and the group
would stop existing. Having a larger membership requirement, will allow groups to have a larger foundation,
