Annual Registration

Each spring, all student organizations are required to complete a four-step annual registration process. This ensures that each organization updates its profile and information with the University, and meets the eligibility requirements outlined in The University's Institutional Rules (Subchapter 6-200).

Organizations that do not complete annual registration will be frozen. Frozen organizations will not have the privileges that are granted to student organizations including but not limited to reserving campus space, participating in student organization fairs, applying for awards and recognition, being eligible for funding opportunities through the Events Co-sponsorship Board.
