HSC Student Organizations

The SFC Activities and Operations (SFCAO) office is here to provide you with the necessary resources to form a student group, program planning tools, and avenues to learn and network with students from all over the world. Any part-time or full time student can form a group. Keep in mind once you have formed your group you must renew each year. Only after your group’s application has been approved can you can take advantage of facilities, funding, office space, and much more.

Updating OwlConnect Rosters

To view PDF of instructions with screenshots, click here.

  1. Log in to OwlConnect.

  2. Go to your org’s page and select “Manage Organization”. Note: only current e-board members will see this option.

  3. Click the three lines in the top left corner to access the left side panel.

  4. Select “Roster.”

  5. If your new officers are already on your membership list, you will just need to hit the pencil icon to the right of their names and select their new positions from the options.

  6. If your new officers are not already on your membership list, you will need to send them an invite to your organization.  For this, you will want to select the blue “Invite People” box at the top of the page.

    •  IMPORTANT: when adding in their Temple email, be sure to use their tux12345@temple.edu email, not their name.name@temple.edu email.  OwlConnect is linked to the tux12345 access names and if it sends to the alias they won’t be able to join properly.

  7. Once new officers are added, you can update the status of outgoing officers by using that same pencil icon to the right of their names.
