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 2022-2023 (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 or is defunct/inactive for 1 year 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 End Date (if approved)||Full Org Status (if all requirements are met)|
|August 15||August Cohort||August 16 – 20||September 30||October 1|
|September 1||September Cohort||September 1 – 15||October 31||November 1|
|November 1||November Cohort||November 1 – 15||January 15||January 15|
|February 1||February Cohort||February 1 – 15||March 31||April 1|
|March 1||March Cohort||March 1 – 15||April 30||May 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.
August 15 is the 2022 fall priority deadline for any new student organization that wants to participate in Fall Get On Board Day, Organization Takeover, or any early fall activities. Applicants who do not meet this deadline will not be approved to participate.
Please note that all UA student organization requirements and training requirements must be met by the end of the provisional period in order to gain full status as an active student organization. New organizations who do not successfully complete all of these requirements will remain in their provisional period until all requirements are complete.
During the provisional period new organizations cannot:
Once a student organization’s provisional period is complete the organization will be listed on mySource and have access to these resources.
The following new organizations are currently in their provisional period. If you are interested in joining an organization, reach out to the president by email.
