Candidacy declarations for the 2024-2025 Student Government Association session (SGA) are open. 

Those interested can apply on ShockerSync to begin the process of joining the organization. SGA is split into executive, legislative and judicial branches. Currently, there are openings for the executive and legislative branches. 

Any undergraduate and graduate student can run for candidacy. To be eligible for candidacy, students must attend at least one rules and regulations meeting.

Applications close at midnight on Feb. 25. 

The Executive Office is currently held by Student Body President Iris Okere and Vice President Sophie Martins.

Due to the Jan. 22-24 special election, SGA will no longer have at-large senator seats and has increased the amount of college-based seats.  If the Supreme Court finds the results constitutional, the changes will go into effect next semester.
