Registering a New Organization

Undergraduates may register new organizations for the 2017-2018 Academic Year between August 1, 2017 and September 15, 2017. 

The application to register will be available via Yale Connect. Starting August 1, 2017, you may click “Register New Organization” under the “Organizations” tab and choose Yale College. 

Please note: If you do not choose “Yale College,” your registration will not be seen by the correct office and your group may not be approved on time. 

To help new student organizations establish a foundation and ensure all your questions are answered, we have launched a required onboarding process. Once you register, we will be in touch to get your Onboarding Process started. To read more about this process, click here
