Recognized Student Clubs and Organizations (RSCO)

 

NEW - Pilot Annual Recognition Program  

We are excited to announce that we are piloting Annual Recognition! This means an RSCO can activate in Fall 2022 and remain active through June 30, 2023*.  The deadline to complete the annual recognition activation has been extended to:  Friday, September 30, 2022, at 4 pm.

In the first week of Spring 2023, the ICC Advisor will conduct an RSCO Officers' eligibility check. If an officer is no longer eligible, the Primary Advisor will be notified to submit replacement officers into the online system by the designated Spring activation date.  RSCOs who miss the fall activation deadline will have an opportunity to obtain spring activation by completing the activation process by Friday, March 24, 2023, at 4 pm.

* RSCOs can only host planning meetings during the winter and summer terms (events and travel will not be approved during those terms).

    • Who We Are
      Inter-Club Council and Recognized Student Clubs and Organizations (RSCO) ICC Logo
      Over 60 recognized student clubs and organizations (RSCO) provide opportunities for students to make friends, enhance learning, and enjoy college life through their co-curricular experience. There are a variety of RSCOs: cultural, religious, vocational, general interest, special needs, and scholastic. 
       
      The Mt. SAC Inter-Club Council (ICC) consists of representatives from each RSCO who share ideas and seek ways to better serve the College community. ICC serves as the governing body of the collective RSCO of Mt. San Antonio College. The purpose of ICC is to promote communication and cooperation between campus RSCOs.

      • Provide a communication network between RSCOs
