Ready to take the involvement plunge but not sure where to begin? Have you scanned the list of registered clubs and not quite found the match for you? Forming or reactivating a club is a step many students take to be an active member of the FSU community. Each year the deadlines for proposed clubs is published through Student Involvement.
Prior to starting the process, we recommend reviewing the current list of registered clubs and requesting a list of deactivated clubs from Student Government Association. Make sure that the idea of your proposed club does not duplicate the purpose of an existing registered club.
Students wishing to form a new club start by checking out an Intent to Register Form in Student Involvement. The Intent to Register Form collects information about the proposed club - general purpose, types of events, and names of four students interested in the proposed club. Upon submission of the Intent to Register Form, the club enters into the Proposed Club status, and has 45 business days to complete steps towards Provisional Registration. The first step in the process is meeting with a SILD staff member or attending the General Information Session for new clubs.
For the fall 2014, a general information session regarding proposal of new clubs will be held on Friday, September 12, 2014 at 2:30pm or Monday, September 15 at 1:30pm in Club Room 3, McCarthy Center fifth floor. During the meeting the process will be outlined to all interested students. The info session is counted towards the registration process as "meeting with SILD".
The steps towards provisional registration can be found in the SILD Handbook, available through Collegiate Link.
All proposed clubs who complete the steps for Provisional Registration, remain provisional for the entire academic year. The last day to file an Intent to Register Form for 2014 is November 4.
