Registration and Updating Officers


To be recognized as a student organization at Lamar University, a group of students must adhere to the following eligibility criteria:

Membership Requirements: The group must consist of at least five members, with three serving as officers (President, Vice President, and Treasurer). Unless granted a one-time, one-semester exemption, each officer must:

  • Be a full-time undergraduate or graduate student at LU.
  • Not be in their first semester as a freshman.
  • Be in good standing with the university regarding disciplinary, scholastic, and financial matters.
  • Maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. An exemption may be requested for review if the individual's GPA has shown an upward trend over the previous three semesters.
  • Complete and pass annual Risk Management training as required by the Texas Education Code Sections 51.9361 - 51.9362.

Advisor Requirement: The group must have a full-time LU employee as their advisor. This advisor should not advise more than five other organizations and must complete annual Risk Management training as mandated by the Texas Education Code Sections 51.9361 - 51.9362.

Purpose and Mission: The organization’s purpose and mission should be unique, distinct from existing student organizations, and align with the university’s purpose, mission, and goals, as well as comply with all policies and laws.

Membership Criteria: Membership in the organization should be open to LU students without discrimination based on race, color, creed, sex, age, handicap, or national origin, in accordance with United States Code Title 2 Section 1311.

Title IX-exempt Greek-letter Organizations: Additionally, any Title IX-exempt Greek-letter fraternity or sorority (as defined under United States Code Title 20 Section 1681) must also be granted membership by the LU Greek Council and receive confirmation from relevant governing bodies such as the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inter-Fraternity Council, College Panhellenic Council, Independent Greek Council, or Multicultural Greek Council.

Once all eligibility requirements are met, the group should proceed with the Registration process available on LU Hub (after sign in). Upon approval, registration is valid for 12 months.


Each organization is required to renew its registration on an annual basis to confirm ongoing compliance with eligibility criteria. Registrations are valid for a period of 12 months, subject to verification on December 15th and May 15th. If more than 12 months have elapsed since the last registration, the organization must undergo re-registration. Officers can initiate this process through the organization's Group Page on LU Hub. Until all officers and advisors fulfill the outlined registration requirements, the organization will be classified as inactive.

Updating Officers and Advisors

To add, remove, or replace registered officers and/or advisors, organizations can utilize the "Update Officers" button located within the Officers section of their Group Page on LU Hub. All appointed officers will undergo a review process to ensure they meet the eligibility requirements. During this period, the organization will be temporarily locked until all officers and advisors fulfill the outlined registration requirements.
