    Welcome to the Student Government Association (SGA)

    Your School. Your Voice.

    Come voice your opinions and concerns at our open forum styled SGA meetings, where student organizations and university offices also promote their on-campus events that encourage an active campus life.

    Governance.Outreach. Advocacy. Leadership.

    SGA is composed of internally-selected representatives from each of the recognized student organizations. Meetings are open to all interested students. SGA's four primary purposes are

    • Advocate for and speak on behalf of the student body at large
    • Provide input to university administration on student and organizational issues
    • Elect/appoint students to university committees
    • Allocate funds to the student organizations
    students voting on fund request

    Fund Requests

    SGA receives funds from Student Services fees every academic year. This allocation is used for sponsoring events that compliment further development of recognized student organizations. Examples of such expenditures include speakers, seminars, workshops, special events, and conference travel and can be found in the SGA constitution.

    Under no circumstances does SGA fund more than 45% of the total cost of a travel event or more than 50% of the total cost of any on-campus event.

    1. Eligibility: Organizations eligble for SGA funding must attend at least 60% of regularly scheduled meetings.
    2. Presentations: Organizations requesting under $399 are required to present one fund request presentation. Organizations requesting $400 or more must present twice and should amend their request depending on what occurs during the first presentation.
    3. Voting: A quorum (50% + 1) of SGA members from recognized student organizations must be in attendance to conduct official business and pass requests.
    4. Post-Vote: If an organization's fund request is passed, they must contact the SGA advisor on the process of being reimbursed for their expenses no later than 2 weeks after the event takes place.

    If your organization wants to make a fund request, fill out the Request Time to Speak online form and Budget for Event/Travel document. Other forms you will need can be found on our Forms page in the "Fund Request" section.
