At The University of Alabama, we encourage creativity and the expression of new ideas through the establishment of Student Organizations. Any enrolled UA student can initiate the creation of a new student organization. In addition, any group of 10 or more currently enrolled UA students who refer to themselves as an organization or club must apply to be recognized with The SOURCE via their individual my SOURCE profile.
Once on the my SOURCE page, you will click on the login button (top right)
Once directed to the mybama screen, enter your username and password
You will now reach your my SOURCE personal homepage. If you have never visited my SOURCE, you should update your profile with contact information, including a telephone number. If you have been in the system, make sure your profile information is updated.
Next, you will begin the organization creation process. For this step, you will need a electronic version of your new organization’s constitution, as well as the names and emails of your organization officers and members, as well as your advisor’s name and contact information. To proceed:
From your my SOURCE profile select the “Organizations” tab
Next select the button “Register a New Organization” found at the bottom left of the page
Fill out the appropriate information (included above in information and/or documents needed)
Click “Submit for Approval” once all of your information has been recorded
Print the final page of your submission (Hazing Acknowledgement Form) and submit to the Office of Student Involvement (Ferguson Center)
Your organization will receive an email of approval/denial within 1 week of submission
Students may ask any University of Alabama full-time faculty or staff member to serve as an advisor to their organization. Students will often ask mentors, faculty or staff members in the department the organization is in, or faculty or staff members they know might have an interest in the organization. Having a difficult time identifying an organization advisor? Contact The SOURCE for assistance and guidance with the process.
All organizations should update their information on their my SOURCE organization page. Organization leaders should update the organization page and information within my SOURCE anytime there is a change.
