Student Group Re-Registration Period

Opens March 15 and Closes at 11:59 PM on April 15.

The Center for Social Concern’s Student group re-registration takes place online through Hopkins Groups. All groups must complete the entire re-registration process by April 15th at 11:59 PM. Failure to meet this deadline may result in a group  suspension for the upcoming academic year.

Student Group Re-Registration

If you are an approved Center for Social Concern student group, we will provide your group funding, advise you, and set the policies for your group to follow. In addition, Student Leadership and Involvement organizes the fall Student Involvement Fair and manages Hopkins Groups.

For more information about the student group re-registration process, view the Group Management Handbook which can be found on the Forms and Policies page of our website.

Important Information

Before you begin student group re-registration, please be aware that the Hopkins Groups website does not allow you to save your answers and return to the form later.  This is why the Center for Social Concern has put much of our process into Word and PDF documents you can edit offline and upload later.

Before you begin the re-registration process, gather the following materials:

  1. Completed Guiding Document (Word Document: view .doc version) or (PDF Document: view .pdf version)<
    • You must use this template; all questions are required.

  3. Completed 2017-18 Budget Excel Document: (view .xlsx version)
  4. Your Group’s Logo (if you have one)
  5. A Profile Picture (optional)

  6. Social Media Information
    • You’ll be asked to include a link to your group’s Facebook page (if you have one).
  7. Contact Information for Your Local/National Affiliate
    • If your group is affiliated with a local or national organization (for example, Habitat or Circle K, etc.) please have the name, email, and phone number for your contact at the national office.
  8. Roster Information
    • You must have at least 10 members in your group.
    • You will be required to indicate who will be your group’s president, treasurer, and main point of contact (for Hopkins Groups).

Once you have these materials, follow “Steps for Re-Registration” in the next tab.

Steps for Re-Registration

Before you begin the steps below, please read the “Important Information” tab about group re-registration.

Step 6: Branding Guidelines and Logo
