Begin by exploring existing organizations:
Before forming a new student organization, we encourage you to browse the existing list of organizations.
You may find a group with the same interests eager for new members. They want talent, ideas, enthusiasm, and commitment.
If you still want to start an organization:
1. Read the Student Senate By-laws to understand the privileges and responsibilities of being a chartered student organization.
2. Read Starting an Organization 101 to understand the process of becoming a chartered student organization.
3. Complete a Registration for a New Organization to be reviewed by the Student Senate Organizations Committee.
If you have questions or need additional support, stop by the Student Involvement office or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Registration for a New Organization forms are now closed. The form will reopen on August 26, 2019.
If you are a SMU department or program seeking a Connect page only:
1.You do not need to complete the Registration for a New Organization, unless you would like to seek recognition as a student organization in addition to having a Connect page.
2. Email email@example.com to request a new Connect.SMU page for your department or program.
