Student Leadership Eligibility

The Student Leadership Eligibility policy refers to all officer positions outlined in a student organization’s constitution and all students employed or appointed to a position by a University department or office. All student leaders must be in good academic standing as well as good disciplinary status with the University, maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA for student organization leadership or a 2.6 cumulative GPA for paid Student Leadership positions, and be enrolled for at least six credit hours each semester during their term. Failure to meet these standards may result in removal of the individual’s leadership role.

The director of Student Life or his or her designee may verify student academic or disciplinary status. The Office of Student Life may conduct periodic review of students in leadership positions. Students who hold a known leadership role who are ineligible will receive written notification from the Office of Student Life. Students who fail to comply with notification to cease their leadership role in the student organization may be subject to discipline under the Code of Student Conduct.  Decisions may be appealed at the discretion of the director of Student Life. When the student making the appeal is advised by the director, an alternate representative from Student Affairs shall hear the appeal.
