The purpose of the Student Government Association (SGA) is to represent the student population on all campuses by pursuing social, political, academic and administrative initiatives of interest to our student body.
In addition, the SGA shall act as a liaison between the student body and the college administration, the overall college community and other individuals and organizations. The ultimate task of the SGA is to address the needs, problems and concerns of the student body and to carefully listen to suggestions from the student body, faculty and administration.
To become a member of SGA, simply complete the interest form and email it to email@example.com. You will receive a return email with eligibility status.
Run for Office
To become an SGA officer, you must be elected. Elections are held in the spring each year. Only students are permitted to vote and will receive an emailed link to participate in elections.
Complete and submit the candidate application if you’d like to run for office. Office positions to apply for are: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Be sure to read the SGA Officers’ Responsibilities to learn more about each position. Eligibility requires that each officer maintain a 2.8 GPA or higher and six credit hours during fall and spring. An officer’s elected term is for one year.
After the new academic year begins, the newly elected president appoints senators. They must maintain a GPA of 2.0.
