Re-register an Existing Organization

Overview

Registration is an annual process. Registration as a student organization at the University of Georgia is a privilege and not a right, and entails responsibilities on the part of the student organization and its members. Registration signifies a willingness on the part of the student organization to comply with state law and the rules, regulations, and policies of the University and the Board of Regents.

The University’s review of a student organization’s registration is conducted on a content-neutral basis. Therefore, the University’s approval or denial of a registration filing is not based on the mission, goals, or beliefs of the student organization requesting registration.

Minimum Requirements:

  • A student organization is a group of at least six (6) UGA students joined together for a common purpose. General membership may be comprised of both full- and part-time UGA students.
  • At least two members must be officers. Only full-time students may serve as officers.
  • Community members are not considered members of the organization and are not authorized to receive the benefits of membership in a registered student organization.
  • While it is not required, it can be beneficial for student organizations to have one or more advisors, who may be University faculty or staff. Should a registered student organization select a community member to serve in an advisory role, it is understood by the organization that the community member will not be recognized by the University of Georgia.

Timeline

The deadline to submit registration for the 2020-2021 academic year is May 31, 2020. Failure to submit registration by this deadline may result in the loss of privileges such as the ability to make campus reservations, promote events on campus, receive allocated funding, etc.

Organizations who have not submitted registration by May 31, 2020, will be made inactive on the Involvement Network. To reactivate your organization's Involvement Network page and re-register for 2020-2021, please contact the Center for Student Activities & Involvement at 706-542-6396 or involvement@uga.edu.

2020-21 Re-Registration Steps

Update Primary Contact

Only the Primary Contact (i.e., Chief Officer) listed on the Involvement Network may complete registration for their student organization. If you need to update your organization’s primary contact for the 2019-2020 academic year, the current Primary Contact may follow this guide or submit the Primary Contact Change Form on the Involvement Network (involve.uga.edu) prior to beginning the registration process. If submitting the Primary Contact Change Form, please allow Center for Student Activities and Involvement staff up to three business days to process your request.

Complete Online Training

Primary Contacts must also complete all mandatory training by watching four training videos and completing all corresponding quizzes with 100% correct answers prior to beginning the registration process. Registration will be denied for organizations whose Primary Contact has not completed the mandatory training modules with 100% correct answers. Training videos and quizzes can be found on the Organization Resources page.
