Register Your Organization

Organization Registration - Why is it necessary to do it again?

At the beginning of the school year your organization's Bengal Connect page will have a blue stripe across it stating that you are eligible to register. You begin the registration by clicking on the REGISTER link in that bar.

Every student organization at Buffalo State, whether USG, fraternity or sorority, or just an independent club, is required to register EVERY YEAR at the beginning of the fall semester. The registration includes names and contact information on current officers, members, and advisors. The registration should be kept up-to-date - if you have a change in officers during the school year, you should re-register with the new officers' information.

This registration puts the club on file with the following campus offices:

  • Student Life Office
  • Events Management Office
  • USG and the USG Business Office

Without an approved registration form on file your group could be denied use of space on campus, use of your budget, and other campus privileges.

Registration is done only with the Bengal Connect online form. Re-registering your active group is done with the link mentioned above. If you need to file a new registration during the year because of a change in leadership, contact the USG Business Office and the registration on your page will be activated. If you wish to register a new student group for the first time you shoud contact the Student Life Office in Student Union 400.
