Re-Recognition-Student Government - Carnegie Mellon University

Re-Recognition Process

Each year, all student government recognized organizations are required to complete the re-recognition process. The goal of the process is to ensure that organizations are still functioning effectively and fulfilling their designated mission, as well as to identify issues that organizations are having functioning in the University environment - i.e., membership concerns, concerns about finances, administrative questions, etc. 

  • Young organizations (those which have existed for 6 years or less) are required to submit a detailed re-recognition application every year in the fall. This application process will be facilitated through The Bridge's registration process.
  • Mature organizations (those which have existed for 7+ years) are required to submit a re-recognition application every year in the spring. 
    1. Mature organizations generally submit a simpler application than young organizations. This application process entails updating the organization's Bridge page through The Bridge's registration process.
    2. Every three years, mature organizations are required to submit a detailed re-recognition application. This application process is also facilitated through The Bridge's registration process. All mature organizations are split up into subcategories: A, B, C.
Organizations will be notified of their status each year and will be directed to apply online for re-recognition at the appropriate time. 
Questions about the re-recognition processes should be directed to the CoSO Director of Young Re-Recognition, TBD or the Director of Mature Re-Recognition, TBD.
