Important Student Organization Deadlines and Updates

We are excited to announce changes coming your way regarding student organization re-registration. Re-registration for the 2016-2017 academic year will look very different.

Re-registration Deadlines— a big difference!

  • ​In the past, re-registration has opened around mid-August and was rolling all year long.
  • This year, re-registration will open on March 22 and will close on Friday, September 16.
  • If your organization is not re-registered by Friday, September 16, you will have to wait until the following academic year to re-register. 

​A new facet of re-registration is a required Re-Registration Workshop. 

  • ​These will take place three times a week from March 22 through April 30. They will also be offered at various times over the summer and in the fall. 
  • Before your organization can complete re-registration in GobblerConnect, someone who will be in a leadership role for the 2016-2017 academic year must attend a workshop.
  • Fall Schedule is below. No need to register for the workshop, just attend.
    Day Time Location
    Thursday, August 25 1:00-3:00 p.m. Room 219, Squires Student Center
    Wednesday, August 31 11:00a.m.-1:00 p.m. Brush Mountain A, Squires Student Center
    Wednesday, August 31 4:30-6:30 p.m. Squires 300
    Wednesday, September 7 10:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. Brush Mountain A, Squires Student Center
    Thursday, September 8 1:00-3:00 p.m. Brush Mountain A, Squires Student Center
    Tuesday, September 13 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Brush Mountain A, Squires Student Center
    Wednesday, September 14 5:30-7:30 p.m. Brush Mountain A, Squires Student Center
    Thursday, September 15 3:00-5:00 p.m. Brush Mountain A, Squires Student Center
  • If you have a laptop computer, please bring it with you. There will be an opportunity to re-register your organization during the workshop.
  • As a current officer in your organization, please be sure to give your new leadership administrative access on your GobblerConnect page. It can be done via these easy steps:
    • Select Roster
    • Manage Roster (the new leadership will have to be on the roster before they can be added as leaders)
    • Find member > Edit Positions
  • Once your organization has attended a workshop, they can complete re-registration via GobblerConnect. 
    • Directions for re-registering will be given during the workshop.

Benefits of early re-registration and what you'll miss out on if you don't!

  • Communication and Updates
    • Re-registering your organization earlier allows the organization to receive the most up to date information from Student Engagement and Campus Life. 
    • Updating your organization allows for a more seamless transition between officers and more continuity in the organization’s programming and functions.
  • Gobblerfest
    • This year, your organization must be re-registered for the 2016-2017 academic year BEFORE you can register for Gobblerfest.
    • Registration for Gobblerfest will open on April 18 and close on August 1 (or when it is full).
    • Again, if your organization is not re-registered by August 1, you cannot participate in Gobblerfest.
  • Room Reservations
    • Space reservations, for the 2016-2017 academic year, through the Event Planning Office in Squires Student Center, will open on May 1. 
    • Any organization who is re-registered by May 1 will be able to make room reservations at that point.
    • This DOES NOT apply to academic spaces. Those rooms will be eligible for reservation 6 days after the start of the 2016-2017 academic year.
  • Student Budget Board Funding
    • To be eligible to apply for funds through Student Budget Board, your organization will need to be re-registered by Friday, September 16, 2016.
    • Funding Workshops will still be required and offered on a regular basis, beginning in the fall semester.

We are excited about the opportunities that these changes provide and know that this will help create a smoother and more holistic process for each of your organizations!
