Club Registration Rules and Regulations

Student Life encourages ACK students to establish their own clubs to gain leadership opportunities and social learning in parallel with their academic education. However, students must follow the rules and regulations in order to ensure a safe environment on campus as follows:

  • Each student applying for a new club must submit a detailed proposal to Student Life that includes the club’s mission, event calendar and budget. There is a deadline for submitting proposals.
  • Student Life has the right to reject or accept clubs depending on students’ attendance, grades and behavior
  • Creators of a club will be its leaders until it grows enough for members to vote on the club’s leadership.
  • The club leadership will be in charge of members, budget and all related matters.
  • Once a month, the club leaders will meet with Student Life to discuss and review attendance, activities, and performances.
  • Each club will follow a reward system for attendance and performance in order to qualify for the competition of “Best Club in ACK”.
  • Club members must meet weekly and plan two main events per academic year that involve ALL ACK members—students and non-students. Fund raising events (donations) can take place and all donated money will be added to the club’s budget.
  • For every 3 ACK student members of a club, 1 non-ACK student may join the club.
  • Student Life has the right to attend club meetings at any time to maintain club performance.
  • Each club must check with Student Life ahead of time before planning any event or meeting.
  • All club members must maintain the physical environment of their club areas by tidying after their meetings and events.
