SGA Executive & Class Officer Positions & Campaigns

There are two categories of offices for which students may campaign: SGA Executive Offices and Class Offices. Any student may campaign for an SGA Executive position, but students may only campaign for class office in their own class. For example, a junior may campaign to be SGA Vice-president or Junior Class Treasurer but not Sophomore Class Secretary.

SGA Executive Officers hold their positions for calendar years and are elected in the late Fall. Class Officers' terms run concurrently with academic years, from August to July, and are elected in the late Spring.

All SGA Officers are required to maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA and can not be on university probation at the time of their campaign or placed on probation at any point during their term. Also, pursuant to SGA Bylaws, all Class Officers with the exception of Senior Class Officers are required to live on campus throughout their term.

If you would like to more about campaigning for an SGA Executive Office, please read the pamphlets explaining the SGA Executive Office or Class Office election processes. Interested students can pick up candidate petitions from the SGA Office in the Student Union Building.
