Eligibility to participate

Only those enrolled as a student (in good standing) currently attending the College are eligible to participate.  If you are uncertain of your enrolment status, please check with your Registration Office.  The Procedures for Election require that the two students elected to the Board must be from different programs. Therefore, the student receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to one position. The student receiving the highest number of votes, who is in a different program from the first highest, will be declared elected to the position.

Each nominee must declare that s/he has every reason to believe that s/he will be able to fulfill the term of office and must be nominated by five other recognized members of the student body. Student members receive $750 every 3 months for the term served on the Board.
