Additional Details

 

Good Standing

Organizations in good standing are those that have met the criteria for recognition on A&T’s campus and not under any alternative status due to being out of compliance with or in violation of policies, procedures and guidelines issued by the national/international headquarters, regional or state director, or the university (including but not limited to Office of Student Activities (OSA), Division of Student Affairs (DSA), or the Council of Presidents (COP)), etc. . 

Organizations in good standing have the privilege of using on-campus facilities, raising funds, sponsoring speakers and public performances, and distributing literature. One of the most important benefits of being a registered or recognized student organization is access to the staff and resources in the Office of Student Activities and other areas of Student Affairs for assistance in program planning, risk management, conflict resolution, fundraising, eligibility for COSA funds or other issues related to your student organization.

1

Inactive

It has been determined that the organization has become inactive due to various reasons that include but are not limited to a lack of membership, absentee leadership, absence of the advisor, member apathy, restructuring, etc.

Inactive organizations are those in which the leadership (executive board, officers, or advisor) has notified OSA that the organization has failed to or was unwilling to do any of the following: maintain membership in the group, elect suitable officers, locate an advisor or submit the required mid-year or end of year reports thus impacting its ability to be active.

2

Probation

Organizations under probationary status are those who have either fallen out of compliance with the university or their national/international or regional/state office and are currently active but under restrictive sanctions. At A&T probationary status is outlined as either Social Probation or Disciplinary Probation. 

2a - Social Probation: Is a time-limited status (usually not more than 1 year but can be extended) where chapters are prohibited from participating in any social activities both on and off campus during the probationary period.  Restrictions include limitations related to access to the plot, the use of paraphernalia, the type and amount of programming permitted, increased community service requirements, and a possible loss of having intake

 

 

 

2b - Disciplinary Probation: Is a time-limited status (usually no less than 1 year but often longer) where chapters are under severe restrictions during the probationary period. Specific restrictions are customized based on the type and severity of infraction/s, the chapter's compliance history, as well as the approach for rehabilitation.   However, on average this status prohibits the chapter from doing any of the following: hosting any type of event on or off-campus, wearing paraphernalia, stepping/strolling, accessing the plot or being eligible for intake.  When placed under disciplinary probation, chapters are responsible for increased community service requirements as well as completion of intensive training and development. 

 

If a member is given an opportunity to be pictured in a University marketing publication and or the website, they may not wear organization paraphernalia if the privilege to wear paraphernalia has been removed.

3

Suspended

Suspended organizations are described as those which have been removed from all campus activities and recognition for a set period of time or indefinitely. The length of time of a suspension is determined and conveyed during the adjudication process.  Suspension terms will depend upon the organization's violations.  Once an organization's suspension period has ended, the organization may choose to submit a letter requesting reinstatement (if eligible). 

1) No identifiable group assembly anywhere on campus (unless otherwise notified)
2) Prohibition of members wearing paraphernalia on campus during the suspension and prior to the reestablishment of a chapter.  This includes ALL apparel (i.e., clothing, bags, jewelry, key chains).
3) No representation in University marketing. The organization will not be listed in the student organization sections of University marketing, publications, or websites.  If a member is given an opportunity to be pictured in a University marketing publication and or the website, they may not wear organization paraphernalia if the privilege to wear paraphernalia has been removed.
4) Suspension of all University Event Center privileges including but not limited to privileges to reserve/use space on campus (including Greek plots).  No off-campus events can be sponsored or co-sponsored by the organization.
5) No participation (as an organization/chapter or member of the group) in Greek Life or other University Wide campus-oriented events.
6) Any other stipulations that may accompany a disciplinary decision. 

4

Defunct

Defunct organizations are those which have failed to submit the annual student organization registration for a full academic year

Although there may be members still on campus, the lack of annual registration indicates that the organization is no longer in effect or use; not operating or functioning.  

5

Requesting Reinstatement or Newly Chartered

The provisions of reinstatement will depend upon the individual organization's violations. The specific violations should be noted in the organization’s letter to request reinstatement.

Based on the scenario this process is completely customized based on the status of the organization. Chapters being reinstated will return under disciplinary probation with checkpoints to earn their way back to good standing.  Newly chartered organizations will be created with guideposts to ensure a successful transition into a full-fledged organization in good standing.
