How does one join Student Government Association? There are two ways to become part of PSU's SGA.  A student may either go through the elections process and get voted in during the April elections or he/she may fill a vacancy.

What is a vacancy and how do I fill one? There are four colleges with senate seats representing each of them, graduate senate seats, and at-large senate seats. When one of these seats opens up, it is a vacancy. When this happens a vacancy committee will meet and interview potential candidates. Generally, this happens at the beginning of each semester, but there have been occasions when a seat has come open mid-semester. A student may apply for a vacancy by filling out an application and signing up for an interview time. The Vacancy Committee will decide if you would be a strong candidate for a senate position based upon your application and your interview.
