The fall renewal period is August 1-September 15.
Registered student organizations that do not renew during the Fall Renewal Period (before Sept. 15) will be de-activated on OrgSync and your organization will be considered in-active. You will not be able to request or spend money, keep current room reservations, make new room reservations, or have access to any other UI resources until after January 1, 2018.
Your student organization is required to renew/update organization information on the group’s OrgSync portal each semester to maintain University registration. Groups renewed between August 1, 2017 and September 15, 2017, will be accepted as renewed/updated. You must update/renew even if you updated your organization on July 31, 2017. (Check the list below to see if your organization needs to renew... list is current as of August 10 at 8:45 PM.)
You must be a member of the organization IN OrgSync, and have Administrator access to complete renewal updates.
To sign-in to OrgSync visit: http://uiowa.orgsync.com/; click on the link titled “Sign-in OrgSync.” You will be routed to a page that asks for your Hawk ID and password. If you do not have a personal profile within OrgSync, you will be prompted to create one when you login to the site.1
Once in OrgSync, you must be a member of your organization. Click on “My Memberships” near the top of the screen; then click on the name of your organization in the drop down menu.2
You will then be routed to your organization’s portal. Once in your group’s portal click on the “Settings” tab on the right side of the Tool bar. If you see "Organization Settings" in the drop down menu, congratulations - you have Administrator Access!3 Click on “Organization Settings”, then finally click on the green "Update Profile" button. You will be directed to an area where you must review and update all pages of organization information. Even if there are no updates, you must review all the pages for accuracy; click the green "Finish" button on the final screen that says, "You're Almost Done!"
