Re-Registering an Existing Student Organization


All existing student organizations are required to re-register annually.  The re-registration period in Engage is open each semester so that you can update your organization’s information after there is officer turnover. Below you will find the re-registration guidelines and information on the submission process.


Re-Registration period for organizations with Fall elections is December 1 – Spring Add/Drop Deadline

Re-Registration period for organizations with Spring elections is April 1 – May 15 and August 1 – Fall Add/Drop Deadline


Note: Organizations that do not re-register during the April 1st – May 15th period must still re-register during the August 1st period in order to be active during the fall semester; however, they will not be eligible to participate in the Fall Student Activities Fair.



Prior to Re-Registration Submission


  1. Read the Registration Guidelines.
  2. Secure a minimum of ten (10) currently enrolled Pitt students as members. You will need at least a president, a vice president, and a business manager.
