SORC TerpLink Registration/Frozen Organizations

In order to student organizations to be able to participate in the First Look Fair, they must be active in TerpLink. This means that they have updated and submitted their registration on TerpLink AND it was approved. Organizations that have not done this are frozen. Frozen organizations are not considered a currently registerd student organization at UMD and lose privlidges associated with being a registered student organization including participation in the First Look Fair.\


Registration for the 2021-2022 academic year will reopen on August 2, 2021 and close on August 19, 2021. All currently frozen organizations will be able to register/unfreeze starting then. 


Registration and renewal for new and returning student organizations are done through TerpLink. A full list of registration requirements can be found on the SORC Registration Checklist - step-by-step directions on what orgs need to do to complete registration INCLUDING links to the President and Treasurer trainings and quizzes. If you are registering a brand new organization, make sure you complete the Intent to Register Form and schedule a New Organization Welcome Meeting with SORC Staff.
