Before starting a new organization, check our student organization list to make sure we don't already have an organization like the one you'd like to start. After that, follow these steps to start your new student organization.

1. Petition

For new student organizations, fill out the Petition for Charter of an MC Student Organization and turn it in to:

Office of Student Development
Student Life Center (Back Patio Offices of BCR)
MC Box 4042
Clinton, MS 39058

If you're interested in making an inactive MC student organization active once again, fill out the Petition for Re-Charter of an MC Student Organization and turn it in to:

Office of Student Development
Student Life Center (Back Patio Offices of BCR)
MC Box 4042
Clinton, MS 39058

2. Approval by the Student Activities and Services Committee

The Petition for Charter will go before a sub-committee of the Mississippi College Student Activities and Services Committee which is made up of at least one MC student, faculty member, and staff member. At least one person from the proposed group should be present at this meeting to answer questions about the proposed organization. 

Once new organizations are recommended by this sub-committee, the organization is voted on by the entire Student Activities and Services Committee. Once the organization is approved by the full committee, they move forward in the process. Once a re-chartered organization is approved by the full committee, the group becomes an active student organization at Mississippi College.

The Office of Student Development will be in contact with you about the date and time of committee meetings.

3. Approval by the Student Senate

This step is only for new student organizations. At least one person from the proposed group should be present at the Senate meeting to answer questions about the proposed organization. If the student senate approves the organization, someone from the Office of Student Development will let you know, and the group becomes an active student organization at Mississippi College.

The Vice President of the Student Government Association (President of the Student Senate) will be in touch with you about the date and time of this senate meeting.

If you have other questions about starting a student organization on campus, refer to the Student Organization Handbook for Non-Social Organizations.

Student Organization Handbook

The Student Organization Handbook is designed for student organizations at Mississippi College other than tribes and clubs.

Appendix Forms

Organizations which do not fill out this required information will be considered inactive and not have the rights and privileges of an MC organization any longer. The deadline for filling out this information is Wednesday, April 26, 2017 by 4:30 pm.
