Charter Requests

The powers and duties to approve or deny charter requests and to revoke or mandate edits to existing charters shall be vested in the Club Affairs Council. The Club Director shall maintain a Charter Request Process, including a constitution template for prospective student organizations to follow, an interactive review process during which the submitters are able to make edits to their request, and a Charter Approval Meeting between the Club Affairs Council and one or more of the submitters, no later than four (4) weeks after the date of the submission.

An organization’s charter request shall be approved or denied by the Club Affairs Council. The Council's decision on any charter request will be based solely on the clubs submission of a properly completed Constitution and its demonstration of a bona fide intent to sponsor programs, activities, or events for students at Brooklyn College. Upon the approval, denial, or revocation of a charter, the Club Affairs Council shall submit a written report, signed by the Club Director, to the President with the charter or charter request, the vote taken, and the reasons for the Council’s decision. In the event the Council denies or revokes a Club's Charter, the club may appeal the decision to the Director of Student Affairs. All appeals must be in writing and must be submitted within ten (10) business days of the decision. A constitution approved by the Council and signed by the Club Director shall constitute a valid USG charter and as such, shall enable a student organization to register undergraduate students as official members, hold elections for executive board positions, receive Student Activity Fee Monies from USG, and hold events on and off campus. 

Charter Revocation

In order to revoke or revise an existing charter, the Council must hold a Charter Review Meeting. Upon investigation and four-fifths (4⁄5) vote of the Council, a student organization may be found in violation of the USG Constitution, the USG Bylaws, or law generally. Such a violation shall constitute ground for the suspension of the offending organization’s charter. Such violations include but are not limited to violating the terms of a USG grant, denying a student membership or access to an event on any discriminatory basis, hazing, charging mandatory membership dues, misuse of the Student Activity Fee, and incitement of violence. Upon the suspension of an organization, the Council shall provide for the offending organization to restore their charter by establishing reasonable criterion by which to judge the organization’s subsequent validity. A suspended organization shall not be allowed to register new members, access the funds in their Brooklyn College Central Depository account, or hold official events on or off campus.

How do I re-register a club for next semester?

REGISTRATION  begins  April 17, 2023 and will end May 1, 2023. For those of you who don't know, Registration is an online application that organizations complete every Spring semester in order to maintain their active status for the following academic year. During this time, clubs have elections to elect their new Executive Board (E-board) and complete all the necessary paperwork to transition seamlessly into the next year. Elections should happen prior to submitting registration but can take place during the month window of Registration. Elections are held to elect members for your club’s/organization’s E-board for the Fall 2023 - Spring 2024 academic year and must take place in accordance to your club's constitution. 

Once your organization complete Elections, you are able to move forward with Registration. The link to the Registration application can be found on your Organization's page and will take the form of a BLUE BUTTON under the club's name and will say "Re-Register this Organization." After clicking on the blue button, you will be transferred to the application which has twelve steps that need to be completed. As we transition to remote working/learning, we have made some changes to the Registration process that we would like you to be aware of. If you have completed Registration before, you will be aware that there are some physical aspects to Registration, specifically, submitting a constitution, SPARC certificates, and Signature Cards that usually require in person contact and we've amended those aspects. Please see below for those changes:
