The University, through The Dean of Students Office, officially recognizes Cal Poly clubs based on university standards and requirements, which include a current Charter. In order to remain active (e.g. access club funds, receive ASI Club Funding, submit E-Plans), all presidents, treasurers and advisors must complete the online training annually, and every club must renew its charter each year.
Only the president, treasurer, and advisor are required to complete the online training. The training takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The training does not have to be completed during one session, as long as the officer/advisor resumes the training using the same computer and browser. Training cannot be completed on a mobile device.
Once all required positions have completed the training, ASI Club Services will email the president a Cal Poly RSO Charter within five business days of the last person completing their online training.
2017-18 Recognized Student Organization Online Training
Charters for 2016-17 will expire on October 13, 2017 at which time Cal Poly Recognized Student Organizations (RSO's) will no longer be able to operate until the chartering process for 2017-18 has been completed. Presidents, treasurers and advisors can complete the online training process now and remain active until October 12, 2018.
Note: Due to recent policy updates made by the University, a truncated Returning Advisor Training is not available for 2017-18. All advisors, new and returning, must complete the full Advisor Training. New officer(s)/advisor(s) will not be able to sign any paperwork until the Charter has been approved by The Dean of Students Office.
