*Membership in a registered student organization is limited to students enrolled for at least one semester hour of credit at ASU.  Faculty, staff, alumni, and others may participate in the activities and programs of student organizations, but may not be recognized as an organizational member unless also enrolled in at least one semester hour of credit at ASU.

Officer Requirements

All student organizations are required to have a minimum of 3 officers. All officers must be students registered and currently enrolled at Arizona State University.

Constitution

All organizations are required to submit a constitution when registering or renewing their student organization. If you are registering with the online registration system for the first time, you will be instructed as to how to upload a copy of the constitution. A sample template to assist you in constructing and formatting your constitution is available on SunDevilSync. Select the Document Type dropdown in the top left and click on “Constitution/Bylaws”.

Non-Discrimination Statement

All constitutions are required to include and clearly label the Non-Discrimination Statement:

Membership and all privileges, including voting and officer positions, must be extended to all students without regard to age, ethnicity, gender, disability, color, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status. Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 106.14, makes an exception for social fraternities and sororities, in regard to gender, for membership criteria. Religious student organizations will not be denied registration solely because they limit membership or leadership positions to students who share the same religious beliefs. These groups, however, may not discriminate in membership or leadership on any other prohibited basis (i.e., age, ethnicity, gender, disability, color, national origin, race, sexual orientation, or veteran status).

Faculty/Staff Advisor

All student organizations are required to have an active and engaged advisor. The advisor must be a full-time or part-time ASU faculty member, academic professional, or staff member that will assist the organization in developing a constructive program within university policy. In addition, the individual cannot be on leave or sabbatical during the time they serve as advisor.

When deciding on a potential faculty/staff advisor you should ask yourself the following questions: Is there an individual on campus that has expertise related to our organization? Is there someone who as expressed interested in our group's activities?
