Student Organization Handbook


Starting a New Student Organization

Interested in starting a new organization at Midd?  The registration request period for new student organizations opens each year on October 1st and runs throughout the fall semester.  An outline of the full New Org Registration Process can be found on the Forms tab in MiddPresence.  There you will find all the details you need to get started in requesting to register your new organization!  Here is a brief overview of the process:

  • Step One: Initial Request - students email SAO@middlebury.edu with the following information: the name of their organization, a description of their organization, and the reason they are looking to create this organization

  • Step Two: Meeting with SAO - once we receive your email, we will set up an initial meeting with you to review the process and give you all the materials you need.

  • Step Three: Submit your formal request via the New Organization Registration Form in MiddPresence

  • Step Four: Meet with the Student Organization Registration Committee (SORC)

  • Step Five: Activation (if approved by the SORC) with Student Activities

If you have any questions or want additional information, please email SAO@middlebury.edu.
