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 during the Fall and Spring semesters. In order to start a new organization, you, and the entire executive board must be at least a second semester freshman (have 12 credit hours taken at American University).

Annual Club Renewal

The Annual Club Renewal Process for the 2016- 2017 school year will open on April 25, 2016, and end on August 31, 2016. Please note that this is a two-step process, and your organization will not be renewed if you do not complete all steps. 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 Training is 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
