The application to register a new student organization is now closed. The UGBC Board for Student Organizations accepts and evaluates applications during the academic year when classes are in session. If you are interested in forming a new student organization, please return to this webpage (http://bc.orgsync.com/org/ugbc1/SO2) when applications reopen this coming September.
For your future reference, the entire approval process is outlined in the following stages:
1. Primary Application
2. Drafting of Constitution (material for drafting a constitution will be provided once your primary application is submitted)
3. Interview with the Board of Student Organizations
4. Approval by the Board of Student Organizations
5. Office of Student Involvement Approval
Please note that submission of material does not guarantee approval of your organization and your application may be denied at any of the above stages. The process, from start to finish, can take 2-3 months if there is a high volume of applications.
While we encourage all interested students to apply for recognition of their organization, please note that reapplications for previously denied organization are discouraged unless you believe that the structure, goals, or methodology of the group have changed significantly since your last application.
For a more in-depth explanation of the approval process for student organizations, the Student Organizations Handbook is a helpful resource.
