STEP UP! CERTIFICATION PROGRAM

There are three different levels: Green, Silver, and Gold.

When applying, you must provide an organization roster with full names and university emails.

Each July, organizations will default one level lower than their current standing (Gold -> Silver, Silver -> Green, Green -> no certification).
Organizations are required to meet specific requirements and apply again to retain their certification level year-to-year.
