Student Clubs

Associated Students of College of Marin (ASCOM) and clubs at the College of Marin (COM) are student initiated and run. Involvement outside of the classroom provides opportunities to develop valuable leadership skills, explore areas of interest and passion, and prepare students for transfer to a four year institution, or future career opportunities.  Students learn effective communication skills, cross cultural experiences across populations, how to work with others, and make friends.

Student Clubs

There are a variety of student clubs at COM, including those that focus on academics, transferring to a college or university, careers, culture/diversity, honor societies, and special interest topics.  

Students who want to start a new club must:  

  • Fill out a registration packet (found under “forms”) and meet with a representative in the Student Activities and Advocacy Office to confirm that all paperwork is complete. 
  • Have at least six currently registered COM students as members. 
  • Officers must have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA and be currently enrolled in one course. 
  • Have an advisor who is a COM employee (faculty or staff member). 
  • Submit a Constitution.

Students who want to reactivate a returning club must: 

  • Submit a completed "Club Renewal" form by October 17, 2016. 
  • Have at least six currently registered COM students as members. 
  • Officers must have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA and five units. 
  • Have an advisor who is a COM employee (faculty or staff member). 

Club Room

A club room has been dedicated to student clubs in Student Services building, room 113.  Clubs are welcome to meet in this space – please contact Student Activities and Advocacy about scheduling if it is a closed meeting.  Clubs are also encouraged to build community with other clubs across the College by spending time to study and/or relax between classes.
