Steps to Register Your Group

Starting a new student organization or club sport is a process that takes about six weeks. These step-by-step instructions will guide through the process to register your new group/team:

  1. Review the Student Organizations Policy
  2. Complete the Registration Agreement
  3. Register your social media accounts
  4. Complete New Budget Account Request
  5. Attend Student Organization Training Workshops
  6. Complete Q&A session with Student Affairs Committee
    Upon receiving all required materials, the group/team information will be submitted by the Student Activities Office to the Student Affairs Committee for review. The Student Activities Office will contact the group/team to confirm attendance at the Student Affairs Committee meeting for the group/team review. The group/team will attend a Student Affairs Committee meeting for a short, question and answer session with the committee. The President is required to attend the SAC review/approval meeting; the campus advisor and Treasurer are encouraged to attend.

    The Student Affairs Committee will only review student group approvals during their September and February meetings. All materials must be submitted to the Student Activities Office one week before the SAC meeting to be considered for approval. Only groups invited by the Student Activities Office are allowed to attend an SAC meeting for group approval.
  7. Receive Recognition Confirmation
    Once your group has completed the previous registration steps, the student organization leaders will receive an official Recognition Confirmation Letter from the Student Activities Office. Keep the official registration confirmation letter on file for the remainder of the academic year. Group registration is effective for the remainder of the academic year. At the start of each academic year, the student organization will be required to complete a new renewal process.
