Forming a Student Organization


Student Organizations are defined as groups of at least 10 members who have applied and been approved by Student Senate. All members must be currently enrolled in classes at JCCC and in good standing at the time of recognition.

In order to gain recognition as a student organization at JCCC, the following requirements must be met:

  • Be not-for-profit in nature.
  • Comply with the college’s policy of nondiscrimination in recruitment and retention of members (see the Student Code of Conduct on page 16).
  • Acquire at least one advisor from JCCC faculty or professional staff who is willing to take on the responsibility of the student organization on a volunteer basis.
  • After being called to attend a Student Senate meeting, have a representative available to present the new organization’s purpose, benefit to campus, fundraising, and event plans at the Student Senate General Assembly Meeting (Mondays at noon in the Virginia Krebs room, CC 107).
  • Be approved by the Student Senate. 

All members of Student Organizations are expected to conduct themselves as responsible members of the JCCC community, whether on or off campus; to respect the rights of others; and abide by the Student Code of Conduct, as well as local, state, and federal laws.
