Registration

Returning Organization Registration

For organizations that have been previously approved and registered with Student Activities during the Spring 2019 semester:

ALL organizations must register with Student Activities each long semester (fall and spring). Fall 2019 Registration opens on Friday, July 26, and closes on Friday, September 6. On or after July 26, the Primary Contact or President should (a) update the organization's OrgSync profile, and (b) send an officer to Student Organization Orientation. Only when both of these are complete will an organization be registered for Fall. The organization is not considered registered until the person who updates the profile receives an email from "UNT Student Activities OrgSync" with the subject "Your registration request for {OrganizationName} has been approved!"

We're giving two student orgs $100 just for getting registered! Register before the first day of class for an early bird chance to win or by the September 6 deadline for an additional chance. 

OrgSync Profile

Update your organization's OrgSync profile by navigating to your organization's portal and clicking the blue "Re-Register" button. Before logging in, you should obtain the following information: number of active members; UNT advisor name, department, phone, and email; name, title, EUID, and email address of ALL officers, and copy of the organization’s constitution. Step-by-step instructions for completing the profile in OrgSync can be found here. We encourage you to have this document pulled up while you navigate through the profile.

In order to update the profile, you will need to be the designated as the Primary Contact or President within the organization’s portal. If you are not listed as the Primary Contact or President for the organization you are trying to register, please ask them to assign you that role. If you cannot get in touch with them, you may contact Student Activities for assistance. For additional information about assigning the Primary Contact role, click here and see "Organization Primary Contact." 

Within a semester, after the initial OrgSync profile is submitted for registration, if any changes occur within the organization (e.g., officer email address, change in an officer or advisor), an organization must submit the change via the Re-Registration form found in the Forms Directory (coming soon). Keeping an organization’s information constantly updated ensures that communication with and about the organization is directed to the appropriate person.

Student Organization Orientation

Student organizations are required to attend organization orientation once per school year. Organizations should send at least one officer (as indicated in its OrgSync profile).  Advisors are encouraged, but not required, to attend. Since it is required once per school year, Spring 2019 organization orientation attendance does not count for Fall 2019 registration.

Orientation topics include OrgSync basic training, along with campus policies, risk management, and resources available to registered student organizations. As seating is limited in each session, RSVP’s are required to ensure a seat. Click on the orientation date you would like to attend below to take you directly to the RSVP on OrgSync. 

​NOTE: Organizations at Discovery Park, in the Office of Greek Life, and Sport Clubs associated with Rec Sports will earn credit for organization orientation through a specialized training session with their respective area. For organizations associated with the Office of Greek Life and Sports Clubs specifically, that officer must be the President and/or Risk Manager. There is no RSVP required for these specialized orientations.
