PLEASE NOTE - No New Student Organization Accounts
As part of the implementation of Student Organization Policy STU-01 we will be making significant changes over the next 1 ½ years. Student Organizations will be considered and/or administered in one of three ways: University Student Organizations (USO), Self-Governed Student Organizations (SGSO) or Non-registered student organizations.

USO’s will be treated as operating units of Indiana University. SGSO’s will be considered an independent entity or independent association of individual students.

In light of these changes we are not establishing any new accounts for student organizations at this time. An organization can form and become registered but will need to establish their own financial account. The organization may still receive funding through departmental or funding board support though the SOA office.
All individuals who perform services for an SOA ORGANIZATION will be paid as a vendor and will need to submit a W-9. It is possible that you will receive an IRS 1099 at the end of the year from our office.
SOA Office Hours
SOA door will be open to the public 12 noon to 4PM.
Please Note
The Statement tab is no longer available. If you require your account balance your Treasurer or Advisor can request one by e-mail at or obtain one in our office.
