In order to maintain recognition through Associated Student Government and receive the privileges of recognition, each organization must annually re-register in Hornet Life and must log 30 hours of community service. Below are instructions for logging service hours and re-registering your organization.

Reporting Service Hours

RSO service hours must be submitted and approved in Hornet Life. Below are instructions for members to submit service hours and for officers to approve service hours in Hornet Life.

Submitting Service Hours

The responsibility for recording service hours lies with each member of the organization. Each member must record his or her own service hours completed throughout the year. Service hours should be reported as follows.

  1. Log in to Hornet Life.
  2. Click on your name in the very top right side of the page.
  3. In the drop-down menu, click on the Involvement link just below your name.
  4. Click on the Service Hours link, and then click on the + ADD SERVICE HOURS button.
  5. From the Organization drop-down menu, select the organization for which you want to submit your service hours. Any organizations you belong to should be listed in this drop-down menu.
  6. Complete the form and then click on the Create button.
  7. Your hours have now been submitted, but must be approved by your RSO President or another officer with administrative rights to your organization's Hornet Life page.

Approving Service Hours (For Presidents/Officers)

Presidents (or any officers who have the appropriate administrative access to your organization's page) must approve service hours submitted by your members. Until the hours have been approved by the President or an officer, they will not count toward your organization's total hours. To approve service hours, follow the steps below.

  1. Log in to Hornet Life and visit your organization's page.
  2. Click on the Service Hours link, and then click the MANAGE SERVICE HOURS button.
  3. In the middle of the page, you will see three tabs, Pending, Approved, and Denied. Click on the Pending tab to view submissions that need approval.
  4. Review each submission. If you are confident the submission is accurate, click on the Approve link on the right side of the page next to each submission. Once you click Approve, the submission is finalized and will count toward your organization's service hours.

At any point, you may return to the Manage Service Hours page to view the total number of Pending, Approved, and/or Denied service hours for your organization. These totals are listed at the top of the page in the Service Hours Summary section. Be sure to select the appropriate time period for which you want to see service hour totals. You can set the time period on the upper right side of the page. The default setting is to show you only the past week's totals. You may select also month, three months, or a custom date range.

Re-Registering Your Organization

Once per year, in the spring semester, Associated Student Government requires each RSO to re-register through Hornet Life. The purpose of re-registering is to ensure to best degree possible that RSO Hornet Life pages are up-to-date and have accurate officers listed. Since Hornet Life is our official method of communication with RSOs, it is important to have an accurate officer roster so that the appropriate RSO leaders receive important information from the Center for Student Involvement and Associated Student Government.

RSOs leaders will be notified when the re-registration period has opened and of the re-registration deadline. Any current member of the RSO Hornet Life page may submit the re-registration. To re-register, follow the steps below.

  1. Log in to Hornet Life.
  2. Click on the Organizations link on the top right side of the page, and then find your organization in the directory.
  3. Select the organization you want to re-register.
  4. Once you are on the RSO page, click the Register button below the RSO name.
  5. Step 1 is to review and update your profile information. Update any necessary profile information, then click Next at the bottom of the page. If all profile information is already up-to-date, simply click Next.
  6. Step 2 is the most important step: ensuring that your officer information is up-to-date. If all of your officers are current, simply click Next. If any of your officers or advisor are outdated, start by reviewing the table of officers listed toward the bottom of the page. If any individuals listed are not the current officers, select the checkbox next to their names, and click the Remove button at the top of the table. Once you have removed any old officers, add your new officers in the fields provided toward the top of the page. From the Position drop-down menu, select the officer position you want to add. Then list the Email, First Name, and Last Name of the officer. Be sure to list the officer’s ESU email address. Click Add. Repeat this process to add each of your additional officers. You must add at least a President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Advisor. Once all old officers have been removed and new officers have been added, click Next.
  7. Click Submit for Approval. Your re-registration submission will be routed to the Center for Student Involvement for approval.
