Start a New Organization

Student Involvement welcomes new student organizations to the Wolfpack! Students interested in starting a new organization! The 2020-2021 Registration Guide includes all pertinent information about the registration process for organizations and advisors seeking active status for the 2020-2021 academic year. All instructions covered in this guide must be followed in order for an organization to qualify for active registration. All applications must be submitted by August 28, 2020.

Prior to Registration

  • Research. Review Get Involved to ensure another student organization is not already in existence with a similar purpose or mission. Contact similar groups to see if the ideas overlap, as this will be asked during the mandatory review session. Determine how the group will be unique and a benefit to members, the campus and surrounding community.
  • Plan. Create a student organization constitution and establish how the group will maintain longevity on campus.
  • Educate. Review NC State REG 11.55.07.  Ensure understanding of university policies, rules, and regulations so that the group is in compliance.
  • Form. Establish an executive board that consists of at least one (1) president and one (1) treasurer. Recruit at least six (6) NC State student members, and secure an advisor that is either faculty, staff, or graduate student employed by the university who is willing to complete all requirements listed above.
