How can I form a new Student Branch?

An Organizer* can form a new Student Branch if one does not currently exist at the school by visiting the IEEE Geographic Unit Formation Policies and Petitions website. Scroll down the page to select the Petition Form. When the petition page loads, log-in using your IEEE Account (username and password) and select Student Branch. Follow the step-by-step instructions to submit the petition.

*An eligible Organizer must be an active IEEE Student or Graduate Student Member and have the school listed on their primary IEEE Education and Professional Information profile.

If a Student Branch already exist at the school and you are looking for a specific area of interest, you can create a Student Branch Chapter or a Student Branch Affinity Group by using the above process and selecting Student Branch Chapter or Student Branch Affinity Group when the petition page loads.

If you require additional assistance regarding forming a new Student Branch you can submit a question, or conduct a Live Chat with a service professional, 24/5, Sunday 4:30pm through Friday 4:30pm ET.
