To begin the process of starting a new group (or joining SSA as an existing group), please submit the above form. Afterward, check out our New Group Leader Guide to learn how to get your group off to a strong start at your campus!

There are two tiers of SSA affiliation. Any high school or college group, in the US or abroad, may be an SSA Affiliate. However, SSA Chapter status is reserved for college-level groups in the US. International groups are not eligible for SSA financial support or supplies; however, they are still invited to affiliate to receive other benefits of SSA affiliation.

If your group is currently an Affiliate and wants to become a Chapter, what does this mean to you?
The only additional requirement to becpme an SSA Chapter is to provide a group membership roster to SSA National twice a year. Doing so will bestow SSA National membership to your group's members absolutely free.
