Student Government Elections: Become A Student Leader!

Any student enrolled in at least one credit at GBC is a member of the SGA, with the rights to vote in student elections, participate in all SGA sponsored activities, and attend all open SGA meetings.

Officers of the SGA advocate for all students and provide input directly to the NSHE Board of Regents. Participating in student government is an incredible educational opportunity, and it looks wonderful on a resume. It's easy to participate. Brief information is provided below. For details, consult the SGA Constitution in MS Word format.

  • Any student eligible to hold office must maintain a semester grade point average of 2.5 or higher.
  • To be eligible to hold the office of President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, or Senator, officers must complete at least six GBC credits or GBC-shared program credits per semester. Candidates for President or Vice President must have completed thirty (30) GBC credit hours or previously held the position of Senator or other executive office at GBC for the term of one term. Previous credit hours are not required for candidates of the Senator position or other executive positions.
