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. New student organizations are accepted at the beginning of the semester. Organizations are currently being accepted for the Spring 2021 Semester. The deadline to register a new organization is January 20, 2021. 

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: 

Select an advisor for your organization. Make sure they are aware of the organization's goals and purpose. The advisor will need to sign the Student Organization Recognition Packet listed in step 4. 

Step 3: 

Write constitution and bylaws with the help of your advisor. 

Step 4: 

Review and complete the Student Organization Recognition Packet. The advisor will need to sign the Advisor Agreement section of the packet. 

Step 5:

Email Student Organization Recognition Packet to studentorgs@augusta.edu.

Step 6:

After submission, the president will get in email to create a JagLife page for the organization. Please wait 5 - 7 business days.

Step 7:

After your organization is approved, the president will choose a date to attend Student Organization training that is offered by the Office of Student Life and Engagement.
