New Organization Instructions - Fall 2016

Registration for new and continuing organizations will start on Monday, Sept 19 at 12noon.  All online form material must be submitted by Friday, October 7 at 5pm.  You can only register during the indicated time period.

Things to know before you register a new organization

  • Before you start a new Registered Campus Organization (RCO), it is best to check out the existing organizations to be sure that we do not already have something similar. Click here to search for current groups on campus.
  • You will need 3 signatories (yourself and two others) to be the authorized representatives of the organization. Signatories can be any current UCLA student, faculty, or staff person.
  • All signatories must attend a New Org Workshop at Day O' SOLE on 10.14.16 in the Pauley Pavilion Club Student leaders and their organizations can kick-start their year at Day O’ SOLE on Friday, October 14, 2016.

At Day O' Sole you will meet and learn from other student leaders. Get to know staff from SOLE and other departments who can be helpful to your organization. Gain the tools, information, resources you need to make this a successful year.

There will be lots of food, prizes, entertainment. Come join the fun!

NOTE: UCLA cannot be used in your organization's name except to indicate geographic location (i.e. xyz club at UCLA).

  • All three signatories must have an OrgSync account before registration or they can’t be signatories.  You will use your UCLA logon to sign-in and create your OrgSync account.  In your OrgSync profile, you should check the listed email address to be sure it is the one you check most frequently.  It will need to be listed in your registration form.
  • Signatories cannot use an email like “” for joining OrgSync or for RCO signatory purposes.  You must use your own email address.

NOTE: Your organization's name will be reviewed if could cause confusion with an existing organization or program.

  • Campus policy that indicates that "Registered Campus Organizations do not operate as official University units, nor are their activities directed or controlled by the University. Activities of such organizations are merely facilitated by the University (including ASUCLA) and no implication should be made that the University sponsors either the organization or its activities."

NOTE: You will need to create a constitution for your organization.  Go here for requirements of the constitution.
