Creating a New Registered Student Organization
We are glad you are interested in creating a new RSO! The set up is fairly simple. Sign in to theLINK with your OneTech username and password. Click on the Organizations tab. Click on "Register a New Organization" on the left column. Follow the instructions there.
In order to complete the registration process there are some forms and documents necessary:
- Faculty/Staff Advisor Agreement -
This form, to be completed by the Faculty/Staff Advisor(s) each year, is completed entirely online on theLink under Forms on Student Life's page.
- Agency Account Approval -
Each year RSO leadership must determine who will have access to the RSO's on-campus bank account. This document can be downloaded here. Once completed it must be submitted either a) electronically uploaded during theLINK registration process, or b) physically brought to Office of Student Services, Doc Bryan Suite 233. **Note: Agency Account number is assigned when the Approval form is received.
- Constitution -
The registration process requires the RSO's constitution to be uploaded. Here is a Sample Constitution. The non-discriminatory clause is required in each constitution:
"Arkansas Tech University prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, or veteran status."
- Annual Student Organization Meetings & Anti-Hazing Training -

After the registration information is received via theLink, the group will be contacted to set up an appointment with the Office of Student Life in order to communicate the policies and procedures to operate as a Registered Student Organization.
For any questions, please contact the Office of Student Life at 479.968.0276 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
