This page is designed to provide Advisors with the most common references policies and procedures for Registered Student Organizations. As employees of Georgia Tech or the Georgia Tech Alumni Association, advisors are required to familiarize themselves with all Georgia Tech policies. The list below is not exhaustive; visit the Policy Library and the GT Catalog for Tech's complete policies and procedures.
Policies & Procedures
All advisors to student clubs and organizations are thought to meet the definition of a "Campus Security Authority”. A "Campus Security Authority” is a Clery-specific term that encompasses certain departments, groups and individual employees who have a duty to report crimes they become aware of, as defined by the Clery Act.
Advisors are not permitted to sign contracts on behalf of an RSO. RSO leaders are required to enter into contracts on their own behalf, and Georgia Tech may not be listed as a party to any agreement.
For information on purchasing and reimbursements for RSOs, please visit the Student Organization Finance Office (SOFO) website and select "Purchasing" from the menu. Purchases made using money held in on-campus accounts (e.g., an RSO agency account or an RSO State/SGA account) are held to the policies and procedures outlines on the Business and Finance portion of the Policy Library.
