Student Organizations

Tier 1- Registration with Ohio University

All student organizations are required to register with Ohio University annually.  

  • For new organizations, registration prompts the creation of a bank account. The Senate Appropriation Commission (SAC) gives each new organization $150 in startup funds (please note, this does not include clubs that were previously active on a campus and still have a bank account from that time).
  • If you are forming a new organization, or if the organization was not registered last year, a copy of the organization’s constitution must accompany the registration form. If the organization has a national affiliation, you must also submit a copy of the national constitution or statement of purpose.
  • Registration must be completed by the annual deadline, which will be provided at the spring Student Organization Training Meeting.
  • The organization will be notified upon approval of the registration. New organizations will be provided with their bank account information over the summer.

2. Must meet the minimum requirements of active members to be a student organization (Athens-10; Dublin-7; Cleveland-5). Multi-campus organizations must meet the expectations of the largest campus involved.
