Student Organization Registration
All organizations must renew their registration annually in order to be recognized by the University as a registered student organization (RSO). Failure to renew your registration annually by the deadline, will result in your organization having their accounts frozen. This status will prevent them from having access to their funds, reserving room spaces, or participating in the student involvement fair. If you have not registered for the upcoming year, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration must be completed by an INCOMING officer who will hold their position in the new academic year. To learn about the benefits of being a registered student organization (RSO), click here.

The Office of Student Organizations strives to encourage co-curricular learning and personal development through intentional student engagement. Student Organizations connect the campus community by highlighting opportunities for meaningful involvement and helping students engage with tools to help manage and track the co-curricular student experience. We support the mission-driven work of student organizations and seek to equip student leaders with vital skills and resources in order to make their organizations more effective, inclusive, impactful, and sustainable.
In order to support and centralize student engagement across campus, our office will:
- Oversee the registration process for Vanderbilt’s 500+ registered student organizations
- Assist student organizations with accessing and managing their finances
- Support the Activity Fee (AcFee) allocation process for student organizations
