Re-Registering

What is Re-Registering?

In order for a club to be recognized at PCC, the club must charter or “register”. Chartering is another way to say starting or forming a club.

  • All returning clubs must re-register in Pantherhub
    • Please follow the instructions below to complete your re-registration. 
    • To be considered a returning club, the club must have been officially registered through Student Life & Leadership in the past two (2) academic years. 

Please note: No new student clubs will be registered at this time.
