Student Org Trainings

Required Training for Student Org Leaders

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/In-person training will be offered virtually as live synchronous sessions via CarmenZoom for the 2020-2021 school year. Presidents and Treasurers each have their own live training session to attend. The sessions are one-hour in length and go more in-depth than the online module.

  • Advisors complete training every 2 years, either live/in-person 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-person. Once an advisor attends in-person 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, csls@osu.edu.

Training timeline:

It is recommended to attend training during your organization's registration window to avoid impacts to your organization's status. Presidents, treasurers, and advisors need to complete training in their selected registration window to maintain continuous registration status. To check your org's registration window, use the Student Organization Management System.
