Steps to Register Your Organization

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:

  1. Review the Student Organizations Policy.
  2. Complete the Registration Agreement.
  3. Be approved by the Student Affairs Committee. Upon receiving all required materials, the Student Activities Office will submit the organization’s information 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.
  4. Have any 2 student officers attend a Student Organization Training Workshop.
  5. Complete a New Budget Account Request.
  6. Receive a Registration Confirmation email from the Student Activities Office once all required steps have been completed. Keep the official registration confirmation email on file for your organization. Once the organization holds elections and elects new officers, the new leadership must go through the Renewal Process in order to stay an active organization.
