We’re glad you’re interested in representing your fellow students. Applying to run for an SGA position is done through submitting an internal online form. Campaigning may begin only after you have submitted your application online and you’ve received an email confirming your eligibility from the Student Government Association.

Students running for Senate positions must have declared their major and minor reflecting the position they wish to run for, or they must have the appropriate amount of credits to run as a class representative. Additionally, students wishing to run for any position must have and maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0.

For more information—or if you have any questions—please feel free to stop by the SGA office now located in the Combes building. You can also contact the SGA Election Task Force.

Elections timeline

At the beginning of each election cycle, students interested in becoming candidates must first submit their online application to run. Once this application has been approved by the SGA Elections Taskforce, candidates may begin campaigning.

The height of the campaign is Speech Night, which takes place on Tuesday, April 17 at 18:30. Online voting will open directly after Speech Night - voting booths will be set-up in Combes throughout the week. Voting ends at 17:00 on Friday, April 20. At the end of the week, the results are announced and a new student government begins to take shape.

How to vote

Voting takes place online each semester.
