      1. Secure the “Advisor Form” from a faculty or staff member agreeing to serve as advisor to the group. Advisors are PMU faculty or staff members with relevant experience and background. The advisor or co-advisor, if he/she should become unable to continue, commits      to notify the Division of Student Affairs.
      2. Secure the Student Organization Application filled by a minimum of 7 full-time students who have a minimum GPA of 2.0. Names must be typed with student signatures and PMU ID number.
      3. Non-Saudi Students participating in Sports Organizations must submit a proof of insurance.
      4. Provide an electronic copy of the organization constitution and bylaws.
        The Department of Campus Life staff review the application and the constitution, and communicate the decision to the students after consultation with the Dean of Students upon his review of the certified/recertified clubs for each semester. This process is allocated five (5) working days.

      1. Information page

        Each student organization is requested to have an information page that will be linked from the list of student organizations on the PMU web site. This page will be created by the student organization but is overseen by the Department of Campus Life. Information for this page will be gathered during the recertification of student organizations.
      2. Organization email address

        The organization president should create a PMU email address for the organization upon initiating the organization. When a new president is elected or appointed the email address is handed over to her/him.
      3. Creating an organization web page

        Organizations may create their own web page. Design and content must be approved by the Department of Campus Life. A web liaison must then be nominated within the organization to communicate with the Department of Campus Life. The role of the web liaison is to present the needs of the organization, seek technical advice as needed, and maintain the web pages and official record.
