In the beginning of each academic year, all student organizations must complete a Student Organization Registration & Contact form (online form).  To be considered registered for the academic year, organizations must submit the following:

  • Student Organization Registration & Contact form
  • An updated Constitution (if required by the Director of Student Leadership & Activities)
  • Attend a financial training for presidents and treasurers

To start a new organization on campus, students must:

  • Meet with the Director of Student Leadership & Activities
  • Write and submit a constitution
  • Submit a petition signed by 50 current SJU undergraduate students.
    • The petition shall read, "We, the undersigned, do hereby petition Saint Joseph's University for recognition of (name of proposed organization).
  • Schedule and hold a general interest meeting
  • Complete the Student Organization Registration & Contact form
  • Attend a financial training for presidents and treasurers

A new organization may not be accepted and/or approved by the Office of Student Leadership & Activities because the proposed organization:

  • Duplicates the purposes of an existing organization
  • Represents a controversial purpose not in line with the mission of a Jesuit, Catholic University
