Student Organization Registration (New Clubs) & Renewal (currently recognized clubs)

New Club Registration

Interested in starting a new club on campus? To be officially recognized as a Registered Student Organization by American University, your club must go through the New Club Registration Process. This process is rolling and so your club can become recognized at any time! Click here for details on New Club Registration!


Annual Club Renewal

Already a club on campus? Be sure to renew your club EVERY Spring, to remain a recognized Registered Student Organization. This process includes 2 important steps: 1. Renewing your organization on the SON system, and 2. Attending the necessary trainings needed to be a successful club! All student clubs MUST be renewed by the end of every spring semester. This process will begin on March 16th and all groups must be registered by April 30th. Click here for details on Annual Club Renewal!


Student Activity Fee Funds

Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) are eligible to apply for Student Activity Fee Funds provided they do not discriminate in their membership or activities based on someone’s true or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability or any other basis under federal or local law. Check out AU Club Council’s Website,, for more info on requesting funds.


***25 Live Trainings are no longer required to become a Recognized Student Organization. If a recognized club wishes to have access to 25 Live, they must still attend a separate training, once they've become recognized. For more information, please visit
