Student Religious Organizations

Information to Start a Group

If you are in the process of forming a new student religious organization on campus, please read the University Policy: Religious / Faith-based Student Organizations at the University of Dayton - Draft and register via 1850. New applications are reviewed twice a year. Applications are due either December 31 in order to be officially recognized for the Spring semester or May 18 in order to be officially recognized for the Fall semester. When you register, please indicate that you are affiliated with Campus Ministry. 

In addition, if the organization is a campus chapter of or connected to a larger organization not headquartered at the University of Dayton, please complete the Non-UD Religious Organization Information Form.

Steps for Starting a Group

Once your organization has registered through 1850, the liaison (if applicable), and student officers will be asked to meet with the director of Campus Ministry or other designee, and a review committee to discuss the application.  The committee will make a recommendation for recognition to the Director of Campus Ministry who will make the final decision about religious/faith-based organization approval.  If this approval is not given, the process stops here.


If religious/faith-based organizational approval is granted by the Director of Campus Ministry, groups can then complete the procedures for organizational development in the Center for Student Involvement through 1850. Final approval is given once this process is completed.


Applications are due either December 31 in order to be officially recognized for the Spring semester or May 18 in order to be officially recognized for the Fall semester.


Funding Options for Student Religious Organizations

If your organization is interested in applying for modest financial support from Campus Ministry, please read Student Religious Organization Funding Procedures and FAQs. Be sure to submit the required financial reports using the Religious Organization Financial Report Form. This form includes both the estimated budget and the end of the year report.

Deadlines are October 15 for the estimated budget and May 31 for the end of the year report.
