Starting a club

This information is for clubs/organizations that are new and/or have not been ASUN recognized within the last two fiscal years. If you are renewing a club/organization, please visit the club renewal page. Club recognition status is based on the Universities fiscal year.

  • Club Mission Statement or description of your club
  • Emails for at least two additional club members

Step 3: Complete new club recognition tasks

After submitting their application, Presidents and Treasurers will receive an email from a club commissioner with a list of Club Recognition Tasks specific to your type of club. Below are the Club Recognition Tasks that clubs need to make sure are done, submitted, or confirmed no later than March 1, 2022 in order to be recognized for the 2021-22 fiscal year.

Deadline

New Clubs that submit their registration in Spring 2021 will be given Spring 2021-22 tasks to complete. New Clubs that complete their spring tasks for 2021-22 will receive Active status for the rest of 2020-21 and 2021-22.

New Clubs that submit a registration form in Fall 2021 will want to finish their recognition tasks as soon as possible in order to take advantage of all Active club privileges. However, the final deadline to submit all tasks to be active for 2021-22 is March 1.

Students wanting to start a new club during the Spring 2022 semester, may want to wait until club recognition starts again on April 1, 2022. New clubs who complete their spring tasks for 2022-23, will also receive recognition for the rest of the 2022 fiscal year.
