Should a club or organization not meet the requirements set out in this manual during one (1) semester, the club or organization’s president and advisor will be required to have a meeting with the VP of Clubs & Organizations to create a plan for the next semester.

If the club or organization does not meet the requirements for a second semester in a row, the club will then be considered inactive and will receive no funding from the Student Government Association until they can prove that they can follow the requirements of an active club. To prove that a club/organization can follow the requirements of an active club, they must host two (2) programs, participate in two (2) community service events, complete one (1) fundraiser, and attend 100% Inter-Club Council Meetings.
