Incoming President and one additional incoming officer need to review the online renewal presentation and pass the Officer Post-Test with at least an 80% or higher to be approved. The renewal presentation provides information to incoming presidents related to managing a student organization. Information includes policies, procedures and available resources for student organizations. *Each organization must have 2 leaders complete this step: The incoming President and another incoming student organization officer. If you chartered your organization in the fall 2019 semester, you will need to complete this step and resubmit your registration!

4. Complete the Primary Advisor Agreement and Post-Test.

The Primary Advisor will need to complete the agreement form and post-test to ensure they understand the policies and procedures. This form will be emailed once an organization has successfully completed the MyInvolvement Renewal Application. Advisors must make an 80% or higher on their post-tests to be approved.
