  • At least 2 officers (which may be part of the 8 members)

Have what you need to form a new organization?

Approval and registration for new organizations consist of three pieces. The first two pieces may be completed in any order.  It is preferred that these steps are completed in advance of the deadline due to the new org process taking anywhere between 2-4 weeks.

  • Once applications open for the semester, submit the new organization's profile application in OrgSync. To do this:
    • On the community homepage in OrgSync, select "Organizations," which will bring you into the directory of organizations that are registered at UNT. Next, click the "Register an Organization" button and select the blue "Register a New Organization" button.
    • Follow the instructions for each step of the profile, including adding member, officer, and advisor information and the constitution/bylaws.
  • Have an officer attend a Student Organization Orientation.

                                                                                                                       

  • Meet with the Coordinator of Student Organizations or Graduate Assistant. You will receive an invitation via email after your profile application is submitted.

After you complete the above pieces, your organization will be reviewed and determined if it will gain approval and registration for the current semester. For information about the reasons that a new organization might not be approved, see the Student Organization Policy
