CERF Process

You can also reference the instructions below to determine what category your request falls under and the next steps for implementation.

Regardless of the size of the event, the only step for external clients is to fill out the form below at least 3 weeks prior to the event date.

After submission, the USC (University Services Committee) will evaluate the request. Schedule will reach out to the Event Contact directly if further clarification is needed or to articulate next steps in the process.

For additional assistance, external event contacts can email or call (503)-375-7182.

Please do not advertise for your event until you receive approval from the university!

Internal Groups (Employees and Students): applies to all current staff, faculty and student personnel.

For all internal requests, Event Contacts must assess their events based on the criteria below to determine the next steps.

Determine the Category of the Event

Below is a table that helps to decipher the category an event will generally fall under. Explanation of these categories are below:

Number of Attendees: the anticipated number of people that will be present.

Number of Departments Collaborated: how many departments are working together on the initial PLANNING of the event (i.e. for Commencement, Registrar, Academics, Campus Care, Campus Safety, Event Tech, Athletics, Food Service and Conference Services are all vital to in the planning process).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Just because an event does not require a CERF does NOT mean it is not valuable to know about. Below is a table of event examples and the category they would fall under. If you are still unsure what category your event falls under, please email for clarification

**If an event is compatible with 2 or more stipulations in a specific category, assume that category is the most applicable to the event.

Events in the SMALL category:

Events that fall under this category only require a room reservation on the Outlook calendar to receive approval. Click the link for Instructions:

Events in the MEDIUM category:

Step 2: The Event Contact will receive an email from Schedule on the USC’s decision. If approved by the USC, the Event Contact needs to make a reservation for their event that is congruent with the time and location stated on the CERF.

Step 3: It is the responsibility of the Event Contact to communicate with Schedule immediately if there are any changes. Failure to do so in a timely manner may result in limited accommodations and in extreme cases, cancellation of the event.
