Retaining Recognition

 To retain recognition, an organization must:

  • Maintain updated contact information for officers and advisor(s) on OrgSync before the start of each semester
  • Maintain a full-time Clemson University faculty or staff member as an Advisor
  • Participate in all required meetings and training” and 

It is the responsibility of the Chief Officer of an organization to notify CUSG Organizations Director in writing if it wants to voluntarily revoke its recognition status permanently.

Any recognized undergraduate student organization that does not follow the above listed responsibilities may lose its recognized status, all student activity funds allocated to the organization, and all rights granted by the recognition process. Your organization will be notified of the intent to withdraw recognition and the reason(s) for which recognition is to be withdrawn by the CUSG Organizations Director via an email sent to the Chief Officer and Advisor of your organization.

1. The CUSG Organizations Director shall determine whether an organization merits expulsion. The Organizations Director will then draft and propose legislation in the form of an expulsion bill. The bill will require a majority vote of the Senate and appropriate signatures before the organization is officially expelled. The Advisor and Chief Officer for the organization will be notified via email when an organization has been expelled.

2. Organizations that are expelled must wait 60 days before they are eligible to apply for re-recognition. During this time the organization will be in a suspended status. The 60 day probation period begins on the day of notification. A group can appeal this decision unless the revocation was initiated under the Student Code of Conduct. When the 60 day period is over, a meeting with the CUSG Organizations Director will be arranged.
