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. Register your social media accounts
  3. Complete the Registration Agreement
  4. Be approved by the Student Affairs Committee
    Upon receiving all required materials, the organization's information will be submitted by the Student Activities Office to the Student Affairs Committee for review. The Student Activities Office will contact the organization to confirm submission of information to the Student Affairs Committee for the organization review. Organization officers are welcome and encouraged to attend the Student Affairs Committee review meeting.
    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 approval.
  5. Complete New Budget Account Request
  6. Receive Registration Confirmation
    Once your group has completed the previous registration steps, the student organization leaders will receive an official Registration Confirmation Letter from the Student Activities Office. Keep the official registration confirmation letter on file for the remainder of the academic year. Registration is effective for the remainder of the officer term set by the organization. Once the organization holds elections and elects new officers, a new Renewal Agreement must be submitted to the Student Activities Office.
