Registration for new student organizations for the 2014-15 academic year will be available starting the first week in October.

Review current listing of active student organizations to determine if a similar organization currently exhists.  If not, START ONE!


How to get Started

  1. Review the Student Organization Classification information in order to get a sense of what is required of each categorization moving forward.  Only two of the three classifications - Sponsored & Voluntary Student Organizations - are recognized by the University.  Non-Affiliated Student Organizations are not University recognized and are simply registered.
  2. Depending on your prospective organization classification, identify a minimum of 4-10 OSU students (including yourself) interested in supporting the creation of your new organization.
  3. Develop a Constitution/Governing Document for your organization including the minumum proscribed guidelines
  4. Review the Registration & Recognition information for an overview of the materials that need to be submitted.
  5. Schedule a time to meet with a representative from the Student Events & Activities Center in order:
    1. To determine if a similar organization is currently active or to access historical information and governing documents of a similar group that might be currently inactive.
    2. To discuss the details of and continue the process of becoming a registered/recognized student organization.
    3. To schedule an appointment, visit us in MU 103 or email
      1. Include your first and last name, the name and short description of the type of organizaiton you want to start, your phone number and if available, a copy of your constitution.
