An undergraduate student organization represents a collective of dedicated students who strive to enhance the learning environment through their active participation in extracurricular activities. These organizations are open to Quinnipiac undergraduate and graduate students and both the groups, and their members, must follow the university's rules outlined in this handbook, as well as receive prior approval by the Department 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.
