Welcome to CougSync
CougSync is the new student organizations management system at WSU. The new system is equipped with lots of tools, including a dynamic calendar, enhanced communication, e-portfolio, as well as direct user interface with Facebook.
The Office of Student Involvement is here to help students get involved with student organizations, please do not hesitate to contact us for any organizational support, including organization registration, event planning, event registration, and funding opportunities, just to name a few.
RENEW OR ACTIVATE YOUR ORGANIZATION NOW!
Below are the requirements/steps that need to be completed for Registered Student Organizations to renew their organization (i.e. groups that have already created an organization on CougSync), or to start a new organization for the upcoming school year.
1. An uploaded constitution: A constitution must be developed and uploaded into organization’s profile on CougSync.
a. There are sample constitutions available on CougSync in the Files section under the Organization Resources folder. Click here for the template.
b. It should at a minimum define group organization, roles and purpose, membership requirements, officer duties, and due rates.
c. If you are just renewing your RSO and will not be changing your constitution, then this step is complete for your group, as the approved constitution originally uploaded will remain attached to your page.
2. Advisor Approval: Your advisor must fill out the Advisor Agreement form to be considered your active advisor. The form can be found by clicking here and will be automatically sent to your advisor when you register or renew your organization, but if they do not receive the email with the link to the form, they can fill it out at the link above. If your RSO has an account with the RSO Finances Office, Advisors can also fill out the Advisor Agreement form when sign your RSO signature card (it will be attached at the bottom).
a. In order to be eligible to serve as an advisor a person must be a salaried employee of WSU. Workers compensated with an hourly wage, and undergraduate employees are not eligible to serve as advisors.

The members who take this quiz must also be members on your CougSync page (i.e. listed under the "People" tab of the CougSync page).
CougSync Login Change
The CougSync login screen has a new look! For your convenience, WSU has changed how you login to CougSync (OrgSync). You will now login with your WSU Network ID and password to access your CougSync account. This is to minimize the number of usernames and passwords that you must remember, and help streamline all your WSU-related logins.
Importing Your Account
Need help logging in to the new CougSync login page? For your convenience, WSU has changed how you login to CougSync. You will now login with your WSU Network ID and password. This is to minimize the number of usernames and passwords that you must remember, and help streamline all your WSU-related logins.
If you log in to CougSync.wsu.edu with your WSU Network ID and your CougSync profile does not have all of your information, you may need to import your account.
First, make sure you are logged in with your WSU Network ID and password (not your internet email address, for example Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.). This is very important to insure that your account is successfully imported.
Step 1. Mouse over the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
Step 2. Click “Manage Account”.
Step 3. Click “Import from Another Account”.
Step 4. Enter the username and password for the account you wish to import. This is most likely your non-WSU email account, for example Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.
If this did not work for you, or if you believe you have a different problem, contact Jason Stucki at (509) 335-7317.
EVENT REGISTRATION CHANGE: NEWLY LINKED TO CALENDAR REQUESTS
CougSync has recently undergone an upgrade with the calendaring system which now allows event registration within a calendar request. All events happening on campus will need to be submitted on your organization’s calendar, as the form "Event Registration" is disabled. Please remember to go to scheduling.wsu.edu first to reserve your space before registering the event.
