- Naviagate to the page of the Club you are interested in joining (or re-joining as all RUSU Clubs require members to re-join every year) [Click here to search for clubs]
- Read the information on the Club page - it will tell you the following:
a. If there is a membership fee to join the Club
b. How the Club manages its' membership.
- If a Club uses online membership through the RUSU web page, when you use the "Join or Renew" button on the page, it will ask you to set up an account in the system. That will be your log-in for all time.
- Once you've set up an account, you will be able to access the Club Membership Form. If you've joined another RUSU Club or RUSU itself, you will already have a log-in.
- If you forget your log-in details, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, student number and the email you think you set up your account with. We will re-set your password so that the next time you log-in, you'll need to set up a new password. Or we will confirm the email you used to set up your account.
- If your Club has a Membership Fee, the Club page should list the fee and how to pay it. If info about payment isn't on the page, the Club will email details to you about how to pay the fee. When the fee is paid, your annual membership will be finalised.
- If your Club doesn't have a Membership Fee, you will usually become a Member as soon as you submit the Membership Form.
- If you have any problems with the Membership Form, contact the Club directly (contact info will be on their page).
- Most Clubs also take memberships at their stalls during the RMIT Orientation events.
- The main days Clubs attend the Orientation events are Week 0 (Week Zero - when only 1st year students are on campus at the start of the year) and again at City Clubs Day (the 1st Thursday of the 1st teaching week of the University academic year).
- Some Clubs also attend the VE Welcome Events at City and Brunswick Campuses but the Uni Week 0 Welcome Events (Tuesday for Brunswick, Wednesday for Bundoora and Thursday for City Campus) and City Clubs Day are the main days. City Clubs Day is the really big day as all the LINK Clubs (sports and arts ) and most of the RUSU Clubs (everything else!) attend. If you don't study at City Campus, it is worth the effort to come into City Clubs Day if you can.
- Not all Clubs attend these events though - so please check your Club Facebook page/s for information about other opportunities to join. If the Club does not have a Facebook page, contact the club by email.
- RUSU has calendar year Clubs (membership = 1st and 2nd Semester of the same year) and mid-year Clubs (membership = 2nd Semester of the current year and 1st Semester of the next year). MOst RUSU Clubs are calendar year Clubs.
- The number of enrolled RMIT student Members a Club has at the end of the 1st semester of its' affiliation period determines the amount of RUSU Club Grants funding it can receive.
