The Board of Regents has authorized use of the automated registration and student accounts system by registered student organizations to collect voluntary contributions from students, provided they satisfy specified criteria. The first opportunity for new organizations to use the systems for the purpose of collecting voluntary contributions was the 1994 winter quarter. The University will bear none of the expenses relating to the modifications, so costs thereof will be borne either by the qualifying organizations or, if deemed appropriate by their respective decision-making processes, by the ASUW and/or GPSS.
Registered student organizations, which are allowed to use the systems, will pay the costs of collecting their fees, which is currently 7.5 percent of all moneys received.
Registered student organizations which sponsor programs that are ongoing, campus-based and related to the educational mission of the University may use the automated student registration and accounts systems to collect voluntary contributions from students, provide they satisfy the criteria presented below.
Registered student organizations must present evidence of broad-based student support of their endeavors by obtaining signatures from a minimum of 15 percent of enrolled students – based on the autumn quarter enrollment of the academic year in which the organizations begins to collect signatures – and securing an affirmative vote of a simple majority of participation in an ASUW election.
Once a registered student organization has been granted access to the systems, it must satisfy a number of requirements to retain that status.
