SGA Officers

SGA officers are students elected as representatives by the student body.  Officers are advised by their appointed advisor and the Associate Dean of Student Services (or designee).  SGA officers must maintain a minimum of 6 credit hours with a cumulative grade point average of 2.75.  Elections for SGA officers and senators occur annually during the spring semester. The SGA offers a great opportunity for students to develop or enhance their leadership skills.
