ALL organizations need to get Recognized annually to become an official Student Organization!
Recognition does expire, and student organizations must apply for and receive Recognition annually based on the University’s fiscal year, which begins July 1st and ends June 30th.
With 300+ student organizations at various stages of recognition, the process can take approximately three (3) weeks. The recognition cycle will be open from Monday, July 9 to Friday, November 9, 2012 at 5:00pm. For pre-existing groups, recognition does expire and needs to be renewed every year.
