How to Start a New Student Organization

Undergraduate Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) may be organized to promote any legal purpose, which involves an educational, recreational, or social interest. 

HERE ARE THE BASIC STEPS IN STARTING A NEW UNDERGRADUATE RSO:

  • To begin, you need to have a commitment from at least six undergraduate students who will assist you in starting up the organization (total membership has to be 51% undergraduate students)
  • A President and Treasurer Role (can be a part of the 6 member minimum total)
  • Once you have generated interest for your organization, you must have a full-time NSU faculty/staff member or a Division of Student Affairs Graduate Assistant who is willing to serve as your advisor.
  • Submit a new registered student organization application on OrgSync to start the registration process.

Please note: All organizations must be open to all students. New organizations can only be created/renewed within the 1st 4 weeks of a term. Students may not start an organization during the semester they are scheduled to graduate.

 

Deadline to register a student organization for the Winter 2018 term is February 1, 2018 by 5 pm.

 

 The procEss for registering/starting your new student organization is as follows:

1. Log into OrgSync*.
2. Click on "Oorganizations".
3. Click on "Register New Organization".
4. Select “Nova Southeastern Main Campus” and click "Submit".
5. Fill out all the information.
6. Wait for confirmation from the Graduate Assistant for Student Organizations.
7. Following the confirmation, the president and treasurer will have to present in front of the Assistant
Director of Campus Life and the Graduate Assistant for Student Organizations. Based on the
presentation, they will then determine whether the organization will continue on to the Conditionally
Approved Status.
8. If the organization moves forward with the Conditionally Approved Status, then they will have to
attend the "New Organization Orientation". Once attended, then the organization will be officially recognized as an RSO.

*To create personal account, go to OrgSync.com and click “Sign In/Sign Up”.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE A NEW ORGANIZATIONAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, SHARKUB, BROUGHT TO YOU BY ENGAGE/CAMPUS LABS, WHICH WILL LAUNCH IN JANUARY 2018. THIS PROCESS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
