New Student Organizations

When a group of students desire to become a sanctioned student organization (an organization that is recognized and approved by the administration at MGCCC), the following procedures must be followed:

  1. Complete the Application for Charter form and turn in to Supervisor of Student Organizations for the appropriate campus. This could be the Coordinator of Student Activities or other members of the Student Services staff. Consult the Dean of Student Services office for a direct point of contact.
  2. Along with the Application for Charter, submit a list of no less than ten names of interested students to the Supervisor of Student Organizations.
  3. As part of the Application for Charter, potential student organizations must select an advisor. Student organization advisors must be a faculty or staff member who agrees to assume the role and responsibilities of advisor for the organization.
  4. Each Application for Charter will be evaluated by the Supervisor of Student Organizations and submitted for approval by the campus Student Government Association.
  5. After the charter is granted, by approval of the Student Government Association, the proposed organization has two weeks to submit a constitution to the Supervisor of Student Organizations. The constitution must clearly state the organization’s purpose, objectives and proposed structure. Constitutions must be consistent with the Student Handbook and other policies supported by the College. All clubs are encouraged to look to national and or local organizations that are similar in focus to theirs, for guidance regarding local charters, constitutions and organizational guidelines.
  6. After approving potential student organizations, the Student Government Association and Supervisor of Student Organizations will submit organization information to the Dean of Student Services for final approval.
  7. All newly approved student organizations must serve a one-semester temporary status period. After an evaluation by the Supervisor of Student Organizations, organizations are granted or refused permanent status. Those organizations that are refused permanent status will be given an opportunity for reconsideration following a one semester waiting period and another evaluation.
