The Campus-Recognized Sorority and Fraternity Transparency Act (AB 524) requires higher education institutions to enforce annual reporting requirements on all recognized campus sororities and fraternities and to suspend those that do not comply with these requirements. This report will be published annually on or before October 1 for the preceding academic year.
In order to maintain recognition status as a Recognized Student Organization (RSO) at the University of Southern California, students must:
• Create a constitution for their organization;
• Identify a full-time faculty/staff advisor;
• Have a roster of at least 10 enrolled USC students;
• At least 5 members must complete the Hazing Prevention 101 course; and
• Every year, students must resubmit for recognition status.
USC recognizes social fraternities and sororities as those organizations that:
• Allow single gender status for fraternities and sororities as protected under Title IX;
• Ensure the presence of an inter/national organization for which the collegiate organization (local chapter) is legally recognized and insured;
• Are governed under national branches and local structures of Panhellenic Council, Inter-fraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, and Asian Greek Council; and
• Can provide incorporation status – federal or state – at the national or local level.
