Recognition for UC Denver organizations will occur in the fall and spring semesters. Student organizations recognized in the spring semester will automatically be recognized in the summer semester. All information submitted must be current and updated by the organization. All applications will be reviewed by the Office of Student Life and any discrepancies or errors in the application may delay the organization’s recognition.
Recogntion Process for Student Organizations
1. Apply for Recognition:
Organizations are required to submit a signed list from a minimum of twenty currently enrolled members, in order to obtain recognition. A downloadable form is available in the online form section.
2. Submit an Organization Description:
The organization description should include the purpose/mission of the organization, criteria for membership, meeting times and locations, and activities sponsored by the organization. The description will be used when we receive questions about the organization and the information will be posted online.
3. Submit a Constitution and/or By-laws:
All student organizations are required to develop either a constitution or by-laws prior to receiving recognition. Any updates or changes to the Constitution/By-laws must be submitted to the Office of Student Life. Click here to view a sample constitution or by-laws.
4. Elect Officers:
Two (2) officers’ (President and Treasurer) names and contact information must be listed on the recognition form. Additional officers such as a Vice President and Secretary are elected at the discretion of the organization. All officers must be currently enrolled at UC Denver and be in good standing with the University.
5. Select an Advisor:
The organization must include all relevant contact information for the advisor in the recognition form (i.e. name, title, department, email, and phone). A letter or email from the advisor indicating their willingness to serve as an advisor to the organization must accompany the recognition application.

Recognized student organizations may receive funding from Student Government. Prior to receiving full recognition, all organizations are required to attend at least one (1) of the mandatory meeting scheduled at the beginning of the semester or arrange a meeting time with the Office of Student Life/Student Government.
