Student Government Association

The Voice of the Student Body

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the representative voice of the student body. Executive board officers, representatives and senators promote the rights and interests of students. Every student of the college becomes a non-voting member of the Student Government Association upon payment of their general fee.

The executive board is composed of a student president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and communications officer. Executive board officers are appointed following the application and interview process of the SGA appointment committee. Representatives are elected officials, voted into their positions by their peers. These include the freshman, sophomore and education center representatives.

Elections take place within the first five weeks of classes. Any student enrolled in a credit program at the college may be eligible to become a SGA senator provided he or she follows attendance guidelines as stated in the Student Government Association Constitution.
