Do you want your student group to be an officially recognized student association?It’s easy! For your organization to be officially recognized by UIC and the School of Public Health obtain an information packet from the Office of Student Affairs, Room 175 and register your organization with Campus Programs. The organization then has one month to submit an Organization Registration Form and the Constitution/ Bylaws to the Office of Student Affairs.  The application must have at least five member signatures and an advisors signature. Once the process has begun (i.e. forms have been submitted), the organization will be granted the following privileges: use of the Student Organization office, use of College facilities for meetings, advertising, and the ability to host fundraising events within the College.
