Register A Student Organization

The University of Oklahoma boasts over 420 registered student organizations that cover a wide variety of interests from academic initiatives to recreational sports, religious groups, honor societies, hobbies, cultural clubs, and more.

All student organizations at the University of Oklahoma are required to register with the Student Government Association (SGA) in order to become or remain eligible for the SGA primary funding process. New organizations may register at any time during the academic year if funding is not of consideration.

Registered organizations receive benefits from the University of Oklahoma including free or discounted reservations of University facilities, the ability to publicize on campus, an assigned mailbox in the Conoco Wing of the Union, sponsorship opportunities from University departments, a University Web site and e-mail address, and more.

In order to register a student organization you need:

  • At least ten (10) enrolled student members

 

  • A faculty/staff advisor who is employed full time at the University of Oklahoma

 

  • A completed online application packet

 

  • A current constitution meeting all of the necessary SGA requirements

The registration process involves enrollment verification for each of the stated members, and employment verification for the stated faculty/staff adviser. Upon completion of these items, the current constitution is forwarded to the SGA General Counsel office for review.

All new organizations must submit a constitution for review. Re-registering groups must submit an updated constitution once every three years based on a pre-determined schedule by SGA General Counsel.  Groups starting with letters R - Z must submit their constitutions in Fall 2014. Groups with letters A-F will submit constitutions in Fall 2015.  Groups starting with letters G-Q will submit constitutions in Fall 2016.

Independent Greek Organizations

Some Greek lettered social organizations may choose not to affiliate with our Greek councils.  Those organizations may affiliate as an independent Greek organization (IGO) through the Center for Student Life.  Independent Greek organizations are expected to abide by University policies, including the alcohol and hazing policies.  For more information on how to be recognized as an IGO, please contact Carmen at cbao@ou.edu.

Non-Hierarchical Registration Form

If your student organization does not utilize a hierarchy system (i.e. electing officers or leaders), this form is available for you to use.  Do not use this form if you have organizational officers/leaders.
