New Student Organization Petitioning Process

If there is an interest in creating a student organization that does not currently exist, a group of students may apply to start a new organization during a designated timeframe in either the fall or spring.

Below are the steps to register a student organization at Trinity University in the Fall 2020 semester. Please note that the registration process lasts for the entirety of the semester.

  • September 21-October 19: Complete the online New Student Organization Application. Additionally, all student groups will be expected to upload a constitution. Please follow this constitution template when creating the constitution. Additionally, student groups will have to submit the names of at least 10 Trinity students who would be members of the organization. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted
  • November 2020: Interview with a Student Involvement representative, Student Activity Mentors and Student Government Association representatives. Interviews are contingent on completed application materials and will be offered by the Coordinator for Student Programs.

Based on the completed application materials and interviews, Student Involvement will determine which organizations will become a Registered Student Organization. Notifications will go out December 14, 2020. The decisions by Student Involvement are final. These new organizations will be required to then complete the Annual Registration Process (outlined below).
