Registration

Registration is now closed. For questions please contact the Campus Activities Office at activities@cornell.edu.

Registration will open in July/August for Fall 2020. Once open the below instructions will be helpful.

If you are starting a new organization or did not update your organization, you will need to register on CampusGroups. See Part A of this email for instructions.

If your organization has registered on campus, but has updated your Officers, you will need to change your Officers in CampusGroups. Please see Part B of this email for instructions.

If your group is already registered for the academic year and has not changed Officers, you will not need to do anything at this time. 

 

Part A- Registering a New Group

In order to be active on campus, all student organizations must go through the registration process.

  • Register online at cornell.campusgroups.com.

  • You will need:
  • The registration form will take about 20-45 minutes to complete and needs to be completed by ONE of your group’s officers, so communicate in advance about who will do the registration form.
  • Once the registration form is complete, each Officer and Advisor will need to spend about 20 minutes completing an Officer/Advisor form before February 21.
  • For more information about the registration process, please view this presentation.
  • Once your group is registered, please be sure to add all of your members to the group so CampusGroups has an accurate roster of your group members.
 

Part B- Updating the Officers of an Existing Group

If your group has had changes in leadership since last semester, you need to make sure this is reflected on CampusGroups. Below are instructions for changing Officers on CampusGroups:

  1. Log onto CampusGroups.

  2. On the homepage of CampusGroups, scroll down to the area that says “My Groups” and click on the group you are looking to edit.
  3. One of the options on your group’s dashboard page will be “Officers” in a yellow box. Click on that box.
  4. The top of the Officers page will have a yellow button that says “Update Officers” on the right-hand side. Click on that button.
  5. You will now be in your group’s registration form. Please DO NOT change anything except for the names of Officers. Any other changes need to be done through the Campus Activities office.
  6. Scroll down to the “Officers” section of the form and edit the Officer names that have changed.
  7. Click “Next” at the bottom of the screen. Continue to click “Next” on all subsequent pages until you click “Submit.”
  8. This will generate Officer/Advisor forms to all new Officers/Advisors. New Officers will then need to fill out the Officer/Advisor form on CampusGroups in order to complete the change.
  9. Your group will be placed in a “Pending” status until all new Officers have completed their forms. This means that your group will not be a registered group on campus until the forms are completed, so please make sure they are done quickly so you can still meet deadlines for SAFC and other group needs.
  10. Once your group is registered, please be sure to add all of your members to the group so CampusGroups has an accurate roster of your group members.
 

We thank you all for your patience through this year of transition. We were pleased with the changeover to CampusGroups last semester and are hopeful that you have found it to be user-friendly. If you have any suggestions for improvements to the new system, please feel free to schedule a meeting with a Campus Activities staff member.
