To learn more about CTSOs visit Student Organizations.

Enrollment deadlines and fees may vary by organization and campus. Contact campus directly for more information. (DECA, FCCLA, FFA, HOSA, NTHS, SkillsUSA, TAFE) Membership eligibility should follow the guidelines of the state and national organization. Advisors are responsible for verifying that students are eligible for membership. A student must be an affiliated, verified member of an organization to be eligible for competition. While a student may be a member in multiple organizations, a student can only compete in one of the following organizations in a given academic school year (DECA, FCCLA, FFA, HOSA, SkillsUSA, TAFE). The number of available competition entries are determined by local and state guidelines for each organization. Local chapters are permitted to establish policies that determine competition eligibility. Policies should be approved by both campus and district administration.
