Campus Mailing Lists, RSO Ownership Transfer Procedure

A summary about transferring registered student organization (RSO) mail list(s) and ownership to the next owner.

Non-RSO lists: Current owners can simply add new owners themselves. The new owner can then remove you and assume control of the list.

See Campus Mailing Lists, Add moderators or owners 


The RSO mailing lists are not automatically transferred to the inbound leadership, so it is the duty of the previous officers (owners) to grant access to the new officers. This can be done via the web interface:

If none of the previous officers with list ownership permissions are available:

  1. Make sure the RSO information is up-to-date here.
  2. Send an email to: requesting the ownership change.   

We will then verify the person requesting ownership is listed as an officer on the RSO page and change it.
