Student Organization Overview

An undergraduate student organization is a group of students who are committed to enriching the learning environment through extracurricular engagement. Student organizations are open to all enrolled Quinnipiac students. All undergraduate student organizations and respective members are required to adhere to the university policies outlined in this handbook and must be approved by the Office of Campus Life.

There are three types of undergraduate student organizations at Quinnipiac:

  • Probationary—An organization that has completed the process for establishing a new undergraduate student organization within the last calendar year. At the end of the probationary one-year period, the membership, progress and activities of the organization will be reviewed and if deemed appropriate, recognition status will be granted.
  • Recognized—An organization that has successfully completed the probationary period and is officially recognized by the university.
  • Chartered—A recognized undergraduate student organization that has completed the Student Government Association Chartering process.
