The University of Nevada, Las Vegas defines a Registered Student Organization as a group of three or more students actively enrolled at UNLV or an affiliate institution (School of Dental Medicine, CSN, and Nevada State College) who share a common purpose or interest. A Registered Student Organization is entirely operated and organized by actively enrolled students with the exception of a UNLV faculty or staff advisor. Registered Student Organizations are subject to all applicable UNLV policies and procedures as well as local, state, and federal laws when conducting organizational business. Registered Student Organizations may also be members of other University based communities that impose additional standards of conduct. Registered Student Organizations and their members are not covered by liability insurance and do not qualify for tax exempt status from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
