Students' Association Petition Process

Candidate Petition Process

During the Students' Association election process, students are required to take out a petition and acquire signatures from students within their academic college. The number of signatures varies dependent on academic college enrollment and will be communicated once a petition is requested. All petitions are electronic through Microsoft Forms making it easy to gain signatures virtually! Students can take out petitions by email the Students' Association Vice Present.

  • All applicants who wish to be considered a candidate for a vacancy must petition fifty (50) signatures or ten percent (10%), whichever is less, with the exception of the Graduate School which needs twenty five (25) signatures or ten percent (10%), whichever is less, from the Corporation members. Students who submitted a complete petition for their respective college in the Corporation general election may use that same petition to declare eligibility for the At-Large election. Students wishing to use their same petition must inform the Vice President of that intention within two (2) days of the close of the general election.
  • Candidates to be considered for an At-Large Senate senate shall be defined by the Board of Directors and then interviewed by the Senate.
