Clubs & Organizations

Undergraduate and Graduate Student Organizations

Starting an Undergraduate or Graduate club is an easy process. During the first three weeks of each fall and spring semester, online registration information will be available on SA Groups. Each club must submit the online registration for approval by the Undergraduate Student Senate or the Graduate Student Assembly, and each President and Treasurer will need to complete online club training prior to being activated . Start a club of interest to you!
