Register A New Organization

If you have an interest shared by other like-minded students and would like to register to become an official group then here is your chance. Student organizations, existing and new, are required to complete the organization registration process to become registered. For new organizations, this registration process take places at the beginning of each academic school year, typically in August and September. Returning student organizations are required to begin the organization registration process during the March and April period and complete this process before the first Council of Organizations meeting of the Fall semester. Failure to complete registration during the allotted period will result in the organization being inactive for the academic year. 

Every student organization must attend the Risk Management and Student Organization Training after registering their organization.
