What is a Student Organization?

A student organization is defined as a group of currently enrolled University of North Carolina at Charlotte students who unite to promote a common interest. These organizations are student-initiated and student-run. Student organizations may include other members of the University community such as alumni, faculty, staff, and administrators as long as 51% of the membership are currently enrolled students. Only currently enrolled students can serve as officers or vote on organizational matters.

UNC Charlotte recognizes the vital contributions that student organizations make to the quality of life on campus; however, recognition as a UNC Charlotte student organization is not to be interpreted as an endorsement, approval, or reflection of the mission, purpose, and/or activities of UNC Charlotte or its affiliates.

The Act for Registration, a document governed by the Student Government Association (SGA), outlines the rights and responsibilities student organizations have at UNC Charlotte. Review this important document.
