Start A Club
There are a number of different student clubs and organizations, but we know that we do not cover everything. Another way to get involved with a student club is by starting a new one.
To begin the formation of a club at Seattle Central College, follow our 5-step process!
1.) Create an Idea
Pick an idea and purpose for a student organization. Check our list of current clubs to make sure that a similar one doesn't already exist.
2.) Get Support
Find 2 current students who share your interest in starting the club. We also recommend finding a faculty or staff member who agrees to serve as your advisor.
3.) Submit an Application
Complete the online New Student Organization Application.
4.) Attend Orientation
If your application is approved, our team will reach out to you to schedule your club orientation.
5.) Submit a Constitution
Fill out a Club Constitution form within 30 days and submit it to SORC!
Seattle Central Student Organizations comply with all federal and state rules and regulations and do not discriminate or limit membership on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, political ideology, disability, status as a veteran, or any physical, sensory, or mental disability.
All Student Organizations can:
- Request funding for activities/events up to $650 per year.
- Meet regularly at Seattle Central with dedicated meeting room space
- Host activities and events on campus during Student Leadership Hours.
- Get access to Student Leadership resources (Examples: lockers, printing, craft materials)
If you have a Club Advisor, you also can:
- Request additional funding depending on CAB’s available budget.
- Request funding for events off-campus.
- Make a recruitment poster and send it to email@example.com
- Download the Seattle Central app and post in the Student Feed.
- Table at our Student Involvement Fair which happens every quarter on the 4th week. There are many students who go there to get interest for their clubs and it’s how many started.
A Club Advisor is a Seattle Central staff or professor who can serve as a resource and guide for the club. In general, they can assist club officers and members in activities, programs, and budget planning.
We have created a guide that you can fill out yourself or with the Club leaders that you can use to define how involved you are in the club.
