Enrollment and GPA
In elections of the past, more students were disqualified by the enrollment and the GPA requirements than any other requirement.
Candidates should make sure to meet the GPA requirements and that there are no errors in their records before submitting applications.
Candidates may contact the Coordinator of Student Activities for verification of the GPA. It is the candidate’s responsibility to correct any
discrepancies. If a candidate is disqualified because of a GPA or enrollment error, an appeal may be made to the Supreme Court Election
Committee with written proof that the error has been corrected before the deadline. No appeals will be heard after the deadline.
We signify that I read through the election procedures, qualifications, and timeline; and I understand that if I do not meet the qualifications, deadlines, and
campaigning procedures stated in this document, I will be disqualified for candidacy and will not be placed on the ballot.
