Frequently Asked Questions

How do I receive access to the BSU! Canvas course?

Access to the BSU! is granted when the primary contact for a student organization begins the registration process. The canvas course includes both Registered Student Organization Training and the Badgers Step Up! Training. The registration process and BSU! Training must be completed by the primary contact.  

If I complete the Badgers Step Up! training, am I done with Student Organization Registration, or do I need to do something else?

You will still need to complete and submit an application and have that application approved. Having the primary contact complete BSU! is just one of the requirements for being a Registered Student Organization (RSO). Check out the Registration 101 section within this Guide for more information about completion of the RSO application process.
