From the Club Coordination Council, Information (CCC) on their Approval Process

Proposed clubs which meet University stipulations for recognition will continue through the process as follows:

  1. The Club Coordination Council (CCC) is notified that the club meets University stipulations so that the CCC can review the club and place the club in a division.
  2. If the CCC determines that an existing group already fulfills the purpose of the prospective club, a reevaluation with the SAO occurs. The CCC will evaluate potential club Constitutions, Purpose Statements, suggested major events, and intended audience/constituency on campus and compare these with existing clubs in their determination.
  3. If the CCC determines that the club is not justified or warranted (for example: the group does not need club recognition to serve its purpose), a reevaluation with the SAO occurs.
  4. The CCC notifies the SAO of the club's placement within a division. The SAO notifies club officers and advisors of approval for probationary status by letter. The CCC is copied on the letter. An account with the Student Union Treasurer's Office will be set up and a netID for the group will be requested.
  5. The terms and expectations of new club probationary status are outlined here.
