Student Organization Recognition

get started HERE

Annual recognition as a student religious organization involves the process of both the USC Office of Religious & Spiritual Life (ORSL) and USC Student Affairs - Campus Activities.

How To Gain Recognition

Step 1

One student leader from each student organization must attend one ORSL recognition meeting, prior to September 15, 2022. Attendance will fulfill your recognition requirement for ORSL.

Tuesday, 9/6, 5pm
Friday, 9/9, 12pm
Monday, 9/12, 5pm (URC108)
Wednesday, 9/14, 5pm

Step 2

Review guidelines on the Campus Activities website

At least 10 members are required to form a club.

Follow the instructions and submit your application via EngageSC.

Remember, Religious Directors cannot serve as your University Advisor, unless they are a USC staff member. You are welcome to list an ORSL Associate Dean as your advisor. Later in the application you can complete information about who your religious director is.

Every group is required to have a constitution. If you were recognized last year, you may use the same one and it is already on file. Here is a sample constitution.
