Re-Registering an Existing Student Organization
All existing student organizations are required to re-register annually. The re-registration period will open in Engage on May 1, 2020 so that you can update your organization’s information. Below you will find the re-registration guidelines and information on the submission process.
Re-Registration for ALL* organizations will be May 1 – September 11, 2020. Undergraduate student organizations wishing to participate in the Fall Activities Fair must submit their registration materials by June 15, 2020 in order to be eligible to participate. Activities Fair registration is a separate process. More information regarding the Fair will be sent to undergraduate organization Primary Contacts and Presidents over the summer.
*New student organizations that registered during the 2019-2020 academic year will not need to re-register until Spring 2021.
Prior to Re-Registration Submission
- Read the Registration Guidelines.
- 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. One person may not hold more than one officer position. Note: When updating your organization’s roster, any new members must be identified by their email@example.com email address.
- Secure a full-time faculty or staff member at the University to serve as your advisor. You will need to attach a signed the Advisor Acceptance Form in the re-registration application. (NEW! Advisor Acceptance Electronic Signature Form uses the DocuSign system–no need to print the form out!)
