Use this handy checklist to maximize your RSO’s CalLink page.

Below is a breakdown of the different resources available within your RSO’s CalLink page.

To access these features, you will need to be a member of the organization. Start by clicking into your organization, which can be found under Memberships at the bottom of the Home page of CalLink. Then, you will need to click the “Manage Organization” button, located in the upper right. From there, select the 3 lines icon on the top left hand corner to access the features explained below. 


CalLink Rosters should be updated every semester to reflect new members joining, as well as the leaving of graduating members. This is very important as all RSOs are required to have at least 4 signatories on their roster at all times, or else their RSO status will be jeopardized.

If you anticipate listing the RSOs you are a part of in graduate school applications or resume for a job or internship, it is important to add yourself onto Rosters for RSOs you are a part of, since we use the Rosters as verification of participation in your organizations.

To make changes to the CalLink Roster, you must first be assigned a CalLink Roster Position with Roster access privileges. For example, the Primary Contact, Signatory, ASUC/GA Agent, or an organization created position that has the Roster access privileges.

Position Descriptions

Positions that students can change

General Members

These students will have a blank section under their Roster positions. Explanations of how to be added onto an RSO’s roster can be seen above.

General Members do not have access to see the others (Finance, Roster, Documents, etc listed on this page.

President/Lead Organizer

OASIS does not designate this status to the person who is in charge of an RSO. It is up to whoever takes charge of their RSO to change their own status on the CalLink Roster to reflect the transition of leadership positions.

Multiple members can be listed as President/Lead Organizer. If your RSO has a big exec board with multiple leadership positions, see the “How do I add additional leadership positions?” on how to include your RSO’s various positions on your CalLink Roster.

Note: Just because you are listed as the President/Lead Organizer does not mean you are able to make class room reservations for your RSO. You must be a signatory to have access to 25live and make a reservation. However, most President/Lead Organizers are signatories, given the nature of being a signatory. See the Signatory for more information.

Primary Contact

During registration, the individual filling out the Registration Form gets updated to be listed as the Primary Contact. However, any Roster member who has a leadership position assigned to them that includes roster management privileges can change their RSO’s Primary Contact at any time.

It is very important to have a responsible person for this position as they will be the first one to get updated from OASIS about things like registration, updates about RSO logistics and policies, and new resources available. They will also be notified about new students trying to be added onto the Roster as well as students requesting information about the organization.

To edit the Primary Contact:

  1. Access the roster.
  2. Click on the small pencil in the upper right of the Primary Contact box on the left of the page
  3. Select any other member that is on the roster

Financial Requestor – 1st Stage

Your RSO must be ASUC sponsored for this position designation to be important. A Financial Requestor has access to your org’s finances and can create a Purchase Request on your organization’s CalLink Finance Section, which puts the Purchase Request at Stage 1.

They can only create a Purchase Request.  They cannot Stage 2 (approve) a purchase request. A Stage 2 Agent User would have to approve it. You can go through your CalLink Roster to see who is designated to do so.

In order to become a Financial Requestor, any Agent, Signatory, or member with a leadership position that has Roster management privileges within your organization would just designate the position to you on the Roster.

How do I add additional leadership positions?

Any member with Roster management privileges can add additional leadership positions to the CalLink Roster. Many RSOs have large leadership boards and the “President/Lead Organizer” title may not work with every position. Examples of created position titles include Social Media Chair, External/Internal Vice President, etc.

If you are anticipate listing the RSOs you are a part of in graduate school applications or resume for a job or internship, it is important to add yourself onto Rosters for RSOs you are a part of and list the positions you hold, since we use the Rosters as verification of participation in your organizations.

To create New Positions:

  1. Go to Roster on CalLink
  2. Click the blue “Manage Positions” button on the top right corner of the page.
  3. Click the blue “+ Position” button on the top left hand corner.
  4. Create the new position. This involves naming the position and selecting position type and Roster management access.

Note: Asides from possible Roster management access, these created positions do not have additional access or abilities.

Positions that students will be designated


Signatories are the authorized representatives for an RSO. Every RSO is required to have a minimum of 4 signatories (maximum of 8). Signatories must complete the Signatory Terms & Conditions every academic year. (Signatory status from previous academic years does not transfer. People who have filled out the signatory form in Fall will continue to have signatory status for Spring.) The Signatory Terms & Conditions outlines signatory responsibilities and university policies to which signatories and RSOs are held accountable. Signatory status does not transfer from previous academic years so that we may ensure that current signatories are aware of current and updated policies and procedures.

You must be listed as a signatory on your CalLink roster in order to make room reservations  on 25live, so if you have issues with making reservations, please check your roster to see if you are first listed as a signatory. If you are not listed on the Roster, but you know you have turned in the Signatory Certification Form and it has been more than 5 business days, you can email us at so we can help.

If you are a current signatory for an RSO and want to be added as a signatory for another RSO, please email with name, email, and organization name so that the staff can update your status.

Attended Signatory Orientation

You will not be given this status unless you are a listed as a signatory on the roster. Two signatories from each organization must attend an in-person orientation. Signatory Orientations are 2 hours in length and include information about university policies & procedures, RSO resources such as funding and space, as well as information related to the health and well being of student leaders and members. Signatory Orientation dates and locations will be updated on

Credit for attending a prior academic year Signatory Orientation does not transfer to the current year as content is updated each academic year (Ex: Credit from attending an orientation in fall 2022 will transfer to spring 2023). Signatories must attend the entire orientation in order to receive credit for attending. Please bring your Cal1 ID card for attendance verification.

ASUC/GA Agent User, Stage 2

Your RSO must be ASUC sponsored for this position designation to be important. Agents are very important, because they are the only ones who can approve Stage 2 or approve a Purchase Request. Approval of a Purchase Request would involve confirming where the payment is being sent,  payment amount, account being debited, and all the proper documentation is correct.

The Agent training must be completed once per fiscal year in order to be granted ASUC/GA Agent status on a RSO CalLink roster. Certifications expire June 30 each year no matter at what time the training was completed the year before. Please reach out to with any questions about the certificaiton or for support in being added to as an agent to a CalLink page after completing the training.

Allow After Hours Access

Your RSO must be ASUC sponsored for this position designation to be important. Students who are a part of ASUC-Sponsored RSOs that have been assigned a space in MLK, ESH, and/or the Hearst Gym Cages or who are a part of Performing Arts RSOs who may need after-hours access to the Practice and Performance Spaces can apply for After Hours Access.  Please review the process before submitting your ASUC Student Union After-Hours Access Request. 

If you have space related concerns or questions about approval of your CalLink form, please contact the ASUC Admin Office at​ If you have questions about the status of your request after it has been approved by the ASUC Admin Office, please contact SUFMO at and include the words “Access Request” in the subject.


This includes all of the finance information that your RSO needs to be financially successful. RSOs can choose to have their finances handled by the Student Union Finance Office, which is located at 432A Eshleman Hall, which require ASUC Sponsorship. If an RSO is sponsored by the ASUC, the finance tab is only visible to Financial Requestors, Agents, or other leadership members listed on your roster. See above how to get access to the finance tab.

Check out the CalLink Finance Training for an overview of finances. Additional information is available on the Fund Your Org page, the Manage Your Money page, and the Manage Your Org page or reach out to OASIS.

See the Most Common CalLink PR Issues and How to Resolve Them to walk through common purchase request issues and how to solve them.


This section includes basic information about the RSO mission and goals. You can also check to see who your OASIS Advisor is at the bottom of this.

  • As a student interested in new orgs, this is a good way to find out about more RSOs.
  • From an RSO perspective, you should update this section every semester during registration if anything has changed to you organization’s purpose, if your logo has changed, etc.
