Starting an All-Square Club

New Club Development (NCD) Application 2014-2015

The Student Activities Board (SAB), a student government body composed entirely of student leaders representing existing student clubs and student councils at NYU, is responsible for recognizing and governing All-Square clubs at NYU. To facilitate the development of new All-Square clubs and to minimize the duplication of existing clubs, the SAB has created the New Club Development Program (NCDP) to assist groups of students proposing to start a new All-Square club. On September 8, 2014 the SAB begins accepting and reviewing applications to the program for the upcoming academic year. Once the application process closes (11:59pm on October 6th) the SAB will not accept applications again until next Fall 2015. The program takes two semesters to complete, fall & spring, in that order.

The Student Activities Board will notify your founding members regarding your application status by 11:59pm by November 6th. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your application please email
