At The University of Alabama, we encourage creativity and the expression of new ideas through the establishment of student organizations. Any enrolled UA student can create a new student organization following the guidelines below.
Read the Create an Org Packet 2021-2022 (PDF) for complete details.
Any group of 10 or more currently enrolled UA students who refer to themselves as an organization or club must apply to be recognized by the Office of Student Involvement. Any organization that has not been registered through mySource previously is considered a new organization.
To register a new organization for recognition by the University of Alabama, complete the steps below.
|Org Proposal Deadline||Cohort Name||Org Proposal Review||Provisional Period (if approved)||Full Org Status (if all requirements are met)|
|August 1||August Cohort||August 1 – 15||September 1 – 30||October 1|

Applications will be reviewed in bulk after each proposal deadline. During the two weeks after each application deadline, students will receive feedback about their new organization proposal and modifications may be required.

New organizations who do not successfully complete all of these requirements will remain in their provisional period until all requirements are complete.
