Existing Student Organization Re-Registration

Existing student organizations are required to re-register with the Office of Student Activities on an annual basis. This process ensures that all officer and advisor information, organization constitutions, and other important information about the organization is up-to-date. Additionally, registered organizations are recognized by the University and are therefore eligible  for important resources to help ensure their success. Student organization registration takes place on PurplePost
