NOTE: All official club or cluster programming (on or off-campus) is required to be submitted as an event in CampusGroups. Click here for instructions on how to create an event using your CampusGroups portal.

What are blackout dates?

OSA works with other CBS partners to set specific dates and times when student organizations are not able to plan any types of events. These are put in place for academic purposes (such as exams or LEAD), important community wide events (like the Career Fair or Town Hall) or breaks and holidays when the school is closed.

Can student groups plan outside of the approved programming times stated below?

No. The programing dates and hours listed below are put into place by OSA to ensure there are no conflicts with classes. Academics are the priority, and this rule also ensures equitable programming opportunities and attendance. 

Are there exceptions to these rules?

Event exceptions are rare and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Student groups must submit an exception request in advance to be reviewed by their OSA club advisor and/or CMC and Academics.
