RSO Management

The Office of Student Leadership and Involvement is excited to announce that Registered Student Organization events, activities, and student travel will be reinstated for the fall 2021 semester. This decision will be effective July 1, 2021. All approved events must comply with building capacity and guidelines set by the building administrator. 

As we approach fall, the current trends and information suggest we will return safely to face-to-face classes with normal seating capacity. In addition to this, campus facilities will be open to offer a full range of experiences.

All events must be registered on TigerZone and approved by the organization’s faculty or staff advisor two weeks prior to the event, a practice that was adopted in Fall 2017. Registered Student Organization event logistics will follow the requirements the UofM has set forth for the campus and will be adjusted in accordance with CDC and Shelby County Health Department Guidelines.

Register Your Organization 

Can't find an organization that fits you?

You can register your own student organization. In order to register as a student organization you will need: 

  • 10 current student members
  • Lambuth Campus organizations need 6 members
  • A Constitution and/or Bylaws for your organization/chapter (review the Registration Checklist & Model Constitution for requirements)
  • Faculty/staff advisor - must be a fulltime faculty or staff member
    After that, you will need to Register in Tiger Zone.  Tiger Zone is your one-stop shop for involvement at the UofM! To register your organization, follow the instructions below. 

NOTE: There are two registration periods per academic year. For fall semester registration will open July 1 and will close the second Friday of the fall semester. For the spring semester registration will open the first day of the spring semester and close the third Friday of the spring semester.

Be sure to have the following:

  • A digital version of your constitution/bylaws available
  • The UofM email addresses of your officers, advisor and members (must be "@memphis.edu")

How to register

  • Go to the Tiger Zone site at Tiger Zone
  • "Sign In" using your UofM username and password (same as university email)
  • Click the "Organizations" tab in the top right corner of the screen
  • Click "Register a New Organization" on the bottom left
  • Fill out as directed
  • On "Roster" Page (page 5), you will need to click the "Add Member List" tab and add at least 10 student members (6 for Lambuth and 3 for Provisional Status.)

NOTE:  There are two registration periods per academic year. For fall semester registration will open July 1 and will close the second Friday of the fall semester. For the spring semester registration will open the first day of the spring semester and close the third Friday of the spring semester. 

  •  Fields without asterisks are not required. You can go back later and complete those fields.
  •  Your "Organization Description" will be where the system pulls keywords for searches. The more descriptive you are, the easier it will be for students to find your organization
  •  When it asks for "Organization Website url", it is asking for what you want to show after the slash "/" in your Tiger Zone url. (example "sac"; the url will be provided, but the "/sac" will be added to the end like so: Student Activities Council)
  •  When entering your Officers, they will show up twice, once as an Officer and once as a Member. That is ok, but please make sure you are not counting the person twice toward your 10 members.
  • The Advisor will also show up as a Member, but should not count toward the 10 members.
  • If you have questions or problems, please email studentinvolvement@memphis.edu or call (901) 678.8679.
