Follow these steps if you are registering a new organization.

1. Orientation & Risk Management

Organization Orientation and Risk Management is required for all student organizations. In this session, we will discuss all of the registration requirements for organizations, applicable policies and procedures, navigating Get Involved, event registration, and resources for RSOs across campus. Per State of Texas House Bill 2639/Senate Bill 1138, enacted by the 80th Texas Legislature, all registered student organizations at the University of Houston must also attend an annual Risk Management Education which will be included in the program. We will cover information about alcohol and drug use and prevention, sexual harassment and sexual assault prevention and response, fire and firearm safety, food safety, and services for students with disabilities. This is the ideal starting place for organizations to gain the most information on how to complete the registration process!

Two of the top three officers must watch the video below and complete the associated quiz. Access to the quiz is located within the video.
*attendance is verified by a score of 100% on the quiz.
