why do you need this information?
As a member of the College Republican National Committee, the official organization for college republicans, we are required to maintain records of all our chapters and their membership. This determines our national representation and resource allocation.
It also helps us help you. If you lose all your files, we have can help you relocate them by returning the information you submitted during rechartering.
Is there a cost to charter?
Nope! It's totally free. Unlike most national collegiate organizations, we don't charge a fee for a charter.

Your CRFV Congressional District Representative will help you obtain it. If, however, you go to school in one of the districts with a vacant representative, reach out to Courtney or Ian and we'll help you get it!
Why isn't my file uploading?
Double check that you're submitting the correct type of file. Only PDF and Microsoft formats are supported. If you're still having trouble, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I appeal?
Appeals cannot be lodged until December 16. The process for appealing will be provided along with the decision on the charter. This will be sent by email to the person who submitted the charter.
When will i hear back?
Every effort will be made to process all rechartering applications in a timely manner; however, depending on the number of applications submitted, it may take some time to get through. Applications will be processed in the order they are submitted, so the earlier you submit, the earlier you will find out. We expect all decisions to be made and announced by December 20.
What if I made a mistake or need to change something?
That's not a problem. Until December 10, you can simply make changes and resubmit all your information to the form. Only the final submission for every chapter will be reviewed.
How do i appeal the number of delegates I was assigned?
If you believe you were assigned the wrong number of delegates, you can submit an appeal here explaining why you think you deserve more or fewer delegates and how many you believe your chapter deserves. The credentials and executive committee will receive the appeal and will make a decision on it in a week.
