We are so excited about your interest and are always here to answer questions or hear feedback!

Here are ways you can join Student Government Association:

  1. Elections: Elections take place at the beginning of the Fall semester and the end of the Spring semester. The Fall and Spring Minor elections allow JMU students to run for Class Council or Senator positions, whether for an academic college or for a class council. The Spring Major elections elect the Student Body President, Student Body Vice President, Executive Treasurer and the Student Representative to the Board of Visitors.
    1. For more information about elected positions, check out the major and minor elections tabs.
  2. Applications: Following the elections, SGA accepts applications for At-Large Senators and Representatives. These positions are filled as seen fit by a committee. The application process occurs later in the Spring semester and in the Fall semester. Applications are currently closed.
