Non-Traditional Student Organization
So you've decided to join NoTSO. We can't wait to meet you at our next meeting!
NoTSO affiliates are classified into one of four categories, as described below. After determining which membership is right for you, click on the appropriate link at the bottom of this page to download and print out that membership application. Bring the completed application with you to the next meeting.
Students who meet one or more of the following criteria are eligible for Regular Membership.
- is returning to college after a minimum two year break
- is over the age of 24
- has had a dependent/dependent(s)
- is a veteran
Any individual who does not meet the requirements for Regular Membership may apply for membership as an Associate Member.
NoTSO hopes to work with one Campus Advisor for each Department at NSU. We ask our advisors to fill out a membership form in order to operate more efficiently. We understand that any faculty or staff member who chooses to be an organization advisor is offering a service, and we appreciate your help. Campus Advisors will act as mentors and counselors as NoTSO members work towards our goals and learn in the process. Your experience and advice is critical to the success of NoTSO.
Each semester, two Campus Advisors are selected to be Campus Sponsors. Campus Sponsors agree to dedicate considerable time and energy to NoTSO. Campus Sponsors must be readily available and on campus throughout the semester; they will sign checks and Student Activities forms and will be an integral part of daily and weekly NoTSO activities. Both Campus sponsors will sit on NoTSO's Executive Board. One of the two Campus Sponsors will be present at all E Board Meetings and Regular Meetings. In the event that both Campus Sponsors cannot attend a meeting, one of the two must be available to meet with a NoTSO officer the day before or after that meeting to discuss the meeting's agenda.
NoTSO Membership Applications
Fill out our online membership application form for Regular Membership or Associate Membership for convenience. You will be asked to provide your social security number and your signature in person before the membership application process can be completed. A social security number and signature must be on file for all members of officially recognized organizations at NSU. You can provide your SSN, your signature and your $10 membership dues at any NoTSO meeting.
Downloadable and Printable Applications
Instead of filling out the online application, you may download the appropriate NoTSO Application form below, fill it out and bring it with you to the meeting. These PDF files will take 60 to 90 seconds to download on a dial-up connection. They will download much faster at NSU's main library, or at the NET building. Please bring your completed and signed application, along with your $10 membership dues, to any NoTSO meeting.
