Student organizations at the University of Maryland serve a valuable educational function by offering students the opportunity to join together in cultural, governmental, art, recreational, political, and/or special interest groups. Student organizations also offer students opportunities to serve in leadership roles and afford unique educational experiences outside the classroom. Finally, student organizations contribute to the diversity and range of activities and perspectives on campus, enriching the overall academic environment. 

The Student Organization Resource Center runs the annual registration process for undergraduate and graduate student organizations in addition to registering new groups. This process is separate from the SGA-recognized funding registration, although having an updated registration with SORC is a requirement to become SGA-recognized. Contact for more information on becoming SGA Recognized.

The tabs on the left menu bar on this page will give you all of the information that you need to know about the requirements to be registered with the university and a step-by-step process on how to register or renew your organization.
