Mizzou Student ORG

The purpose of this page is to give info to wade through the red tape that is Mizzou's ORG.


Each group must have a President, Treasurer and Primary Contact on file with the ORG. The president and treasurer must attend training in order to release the 'training holds'. Each training session is only 1 hour long and is pretty harmless.


In order to receive money for travel and honorariums, you must submit detailed budgets on time. These are very easy, but you must be able to justify each budget with the proper documentation (ie. you must prove its a real event). You must use websites with the url located on the top of the printout. This is very important. If the proof looks faked, you will get denied.
