How to become a student organization

  1. Create your constitution and bylaws: You can do this before you have all of your members or after you have your leadership team created. If you need assistance a student life worker, or administrator will be happy to assist you. Turn this into Chas Lietaert, Director of Student Life.
  2. All registered student organizations must provide one representative to the Student Government Association general assembly meetings; this can be a dual role with another position.
  3. Find an advisor: An advisor can be a faculty member, administrator, or college staff member. An advisor serves as a form of guidance to the student organization and a liaison between the student organization and student life. The advisor is in place to support the student organization in their events, meetings, community service, etc. Click here for advisor expectations.
  4. Complete a 30 day probationary period: After 30 days of positive influence on campus your student organization will be accepted or rejected by Jackson College Student Government. Once approved you are an official Registered Student Organization, eligible for funding and support from the Office of Student Life.
