Steps to Renew Your Group
Renewing a current student organization takes about two weeks. These step-by-step instructions will assist you in completing the renewal process:
- Review the list of student organizations and note any corrections that need to be made to your organization's page.
- Register any social media accounts.
- Complete the Renewal Agreement Form, making changes you noted in Step 1.
- Have any 2 student officers attend a Student Organization Training Workshop.
- Receive a renewal confirmation email from the Student Activities Office once all requirements have been completed. Keep the official renewal confirmation email on file for your organization. Once your organization holds elections and new officers are elected, a new Renewal Agreement will have to be submitted to the Student Activities Office and the renewal process will have to be completed again by the new leadership.
