Register Organization


Here's how the registration process will work:

  • When you click the link below, you will be taken to a page which will ask for very basic information about your club (name, keywords, etc.).
  • The following page will review the policies and procedures for registering an organization.  You must agree to these terms before proceeding.  
  • After agreeing to the terms, you will enter basic organization information.
  • You will then be prompted to upload a copy of your constitution & bylaws.
  • If you are a sport club, you will then submit the Sport Club Addendum.
  • The following page will ask for officer information (name and Cornell email) for four (4) officers for undergrad groups, or at least three (3) officers for graduate/professional groups.  This page will also ask for the name and Cornell email address of your advisor.
  • At least one (1) of the officers must be a leader of the organization (i.e. president, chairperson, captain, etc.), and at least one (1) officer must oversee the club finances (i.e. treasurer, financial chairperson, VP for finance, etc.). The other officers may hold any title. If more than one person is in a leadership role, please list them in the third or fourth officer position (i.e. co-president, co-chairperson, co-captain, etc.).
  • Once all of this is submitted, an email will be sent to all of the officers listed, as well as the advisor. The information will then be reviewed by our office, and if appropriate, the organization will receive preliminary approval.  An email will be sent indicating this approval status.  Note that this preliminary email DOES NOT indicate final approval of registration.
  • For Independent Organizations, the officers and advisors will be required to submit the CIO form, which includes the required Sexual Violence Prevention Training (for officers only), and enter their own contact information on a separate form.  They must then agree to all terms and submit the form.  Once all all officers and the advisor have submitted their forms, your organization will receive final approval.
  • For University Organizations, the officers and advisors will be required to submit the statement of officer compliance, which includes the required Sexual Violence Prevention Training (for officers only), and enter their own contact information on a separate form.  They must then agree to all terms and submit the form.  The advisor will also submit the Advisor Verification Form, and enter the department chairperson's name and email.  The Department Chairperson will then be notified, and asked to confirm that the organization is, in fact, part of that department.  Once all officers, the advisor, and the department chairperson have submitted their forms, your organization will receive final approval.

For more information on any policies, procedures, and/or guidelines pertaining to student organizations, please contact the Campus Activities Office (CAO), 5th floor, Willard Straight Hall, (607) 255-4169, activities@cornell.edu.

Organization registration is separated by UNDERGRADUATE student organizations, and GRADUATE/PROFESSIONAL student organizations. The difference is determined by membership. If the majority of the members of your group are undergraduate, then you would register as an UNDERGRADUATE organization. If the majority of members are graduate/professional students, then you should register as a GRADUATE/PROFESSIONAL organization. Note that officers of either may be undergraduate or graduate/professional students (unless otherwise determined by your club's constitution/bylaws).
