WCCCD Student Organization Policies


All returning student organizations must register with the WCCCD District Office of Student Services.   

Each organization is responsible for making sure that the records in the District Office of Student Services are kept updated.  This includes informing the District Office of Student Services about any changes in contact information, officers, advisors, or organization essentials (such as statement of purpose or constitution).   Until the records are updated, the previous officer may still be held responsible for actions of the organization.  

NOTE: Only WCCCD full-time faculty and staff members may advise a student organization.   A WCCCD full-time faculty and staff member may advise no more than three organizations concurrently. 

Student Clubs/Organizations

Students are free to organize associations in collaboration with a full-time faculty or staff member and a minimum of 10 student members. We encourage them to promote their common interest, provided such organizations are consistent with the provisions of state law and are not contrary to the educational goals of the community college.

Participation in campus organizations is open to all students. 

All applications to organize a club or organization must be approved by the District Office of Student Services and must meet the following requirements:

  • Only currently registered WCCCD students may hold offices or other leadership positions in the organization.
  • Student organizations cannot share the same mission statement, purpose, or officers with another student organization.  
  • All student organizations officers must hold at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA.
  • A current full-time WCCCD faculty or staff member must serve as an advisor to a student organization. 
  • A returning student organization must register every fall semester.  

The Wayne County Community College District has established policies related to student activities and the operation of clubs and organizations. All students are required to adhere to these policies and procedures. For additional information on how you can get involved in student activities and campus life, please contact the District Office of Student Services Office at 313-496-2634 or refer the WCCCD Student Handbook.

It is the student’s responsibility to provide individual liability, health and accident insurance coverage. The College accepts no responsibility for insurance for students who participate in student activities.
