Annual Registration Process
All officially recognized student organizations must re-register with The Department of Student Life and the SOuRCe each academic year. Registration must be completed by the end of the third week in September. If registration expires, all privileges are forfeited until registration is completed. Upon completion of registration, all privileges will be reinstated.
Organizations that fail to register for two consecutive years will lose their status as a recognized student organization and will be required to go through the New Student Organization Recognition process.
