Annual Renewal

Annually, student organizations are required to re-register with the Center for Student Engagement to maintain their active status on campus. The annual renewal process for 2021-2022 will open in May 2021. If your organization does not renew with the Center for Student Engagement by the deadline, your organization will be marked inactive. If the organization is inactive, your organization will be unable to reserve rooms on campus or have access to all of the benefits of being a registered student organization.

New organizations who registered in 2020-2021, are required to complete this process.

The Annual Renewal Process includes two essential steps to successfully renew your organization with the Center for Student Engagement for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Step 1: Complete the Renewal Form on VOLink

The Renewal Form on VOLink indicates the organization leadership, provides an updated profile for your organization, and policy agreements.

How to Access the Renewal Form:

To renew your organization, please follow these steps after logging into VOLink:
Navigate to the “Organizations” tab

Note: If blue link button does not appear by your organization’s name, a re-registration for this academic year has already been submitted for your organization.

Step 2: Attend SOCK

Save the date! On August 28th, the Student Organization Conference at Knoxville (SOCK) will be held at the Student Union. This conference will provide student leaders with the opportunity to gain knowledge in topics such as, campus/department policies and procedures, VOLink, programming, leadership, and other essential information for organizational success!

Registration for this conference is embedded in the 2021-2022 organization renewal form. After you renew your organization, you will be prompted to register for the SOCK Conference.

Please keep in mind that attendance to this conference is mandatory for each organization, per Hilltopics. If you’re unable to attend, we ask that an organization representative stands in your place. More details regarding time and time and specific locations will be shared in another email. I look forward to gathering in person!
