Starting and Registering Clubs

Starting a New Club or Organization

Creating a new club or organization is easy. As long as you meet the requirements, complete the required forms and meet the deadlines provided, you are on your way to creating your group! Below are a few requirements to have before you start, please make sure you have:

  • At least ten members who are the School of Engineering students
  • A faculty or staff advisor
  • A mission statement and goals
  • A constitution

For more detailed information, please download our Student Organization Handbook.

Please read through the Student Organization Handbook (above) and submit completed Club Registration Packet to the Office of Student Activities and Resource Center, undergraduate clubs, or the Office of Graduate Student Services, graduate clubs. A meeting will be set up by the end of October with the Coordinator and a Student Council member for official recognition.

Please submit your new club application materials by Friday, October 17th (5:00pm) to be considered for Fall 2014 recognition. If submitted after 10/17/2014, your organization will not be able to become recognized until Fall 2015.

Approved Club Applicaitons will enter into an Incubation period and be eligible for the Spring Club Fest.
