Organization Status Requests

Thank you for your interest in becoming a registered student organization at Auburn University! Numerous organizations with a variety of interests and goals are available for students at Auburn and yours can add to this exciting mix of opportunities for student membership.

Provisional Status

An organization is given one year of Provisional status before becoming an officially recognized AU student organization and the granting of Permanent status by Organizations Board. During the Provisional period, the organization must demonstrate the following in order to apply for Permanent status:

  1. Its value through worthwhile group enterprises and activities
  2. Sound financial policies
  3. That it has met all the requirements to remain a recognized AU student organization as outlined in the Provisional Status Information Packet.

Organizations on Provisional status are eligible for all benefits with the exception of the ability to apply for Organizations Fund monies. Only Permanent organizations are eligible to apply.  An organization remains active as long as they meet the annual requirements to remain a recognized AU student organization.

Permanent Status

Permanent Organizations are recognized as AU student organization if, at the expiration of their provisional status, they complete the required paperwork and can demonstrate to the Student Organizations Board the items mentioned above. The Student Organizations Board will then vote to approve or deny the organization’s Permanent status request.
