Getting Started

How to Start a New Student Organization

To start a new student organization/club at Augusta University, follow the simple steps below. 

All student organizations must complete these steps to be recognized on campus and attend a Student Organization Training.

Step 1:

Check our current list of student organizations. We do not want to duplicate any pre-existing orgs, so make sure that the organization you want to start is original.  

Step 2: 

Review the Student Organization Recognition/Renew Packet (print here or pick up a packet in Student Life & Engagement)

Step 3:

Complete the online Student Org 101 Form

Step 4:

Talk to a member of the faculty or staff and find an interested professional to serve as the advisor. Have the President and Advisor sign the Role of the Advisor and Advisor Agreement Forms. 

Step 5:

With the assistance of your advisor, write your organizations Constitution & Bylaws. Click Here for an example template. 

Step 6

Bring your completed Student Organization Recognition & Renewal Packet to the Student Life & Engagement office (2nd floor - JSAC) for approval and sign-up for an upcoming Student Organization Training. All student org presidents (or a representative) must attend training.
