Starting a New Student Organization

Morehead State strongly supports the innovation of our students in creating organizations to meet shared interests. The process for creating a new student organization is outlined below. For additional support, contact Student Activities at 606-783-2071.


  • Ability to apply for funding through the Student Government Association (SGA).
  • Ability to request use of campus facilities through Rendezvous for organization-related activities.
  • Online portal and free website through Eagle Link.
  • Ability to reserve a table at the annual Eagle Fest/Eagle Explosion.

To register or re-register your student organization, you will need the following:

  • At least 8 members listed on your roster (this may include officers of the organization) Members are defined as current MSU students enrolled full-time (12 Undergraduate or nine Graduate credit hours)
  • A constitution or set of bylaws that governs the organization as well as processes and procedures of the organization:
    • Basic template
    • Intermediate template
    • Advanced template
  • Your advisor must be a full-time MSU employee.
