Student Leader Eligibility Policy

This policy establishes the minimum University requirements for Student Leaders.

University Policy SA-10.04-09/14

Students must meet the following minimum requirements to be eligible to seek and retain office in any student organization (including recreational sport clubs):

  • Be enrolled in at least six (6) credit hours per semester

  • Have and maintain a cumulative UWF grade point average of at least 2.50

  • Not be on academic or disciplinary probation

Students failing to maintain these minimum standards will forfeit their positions.  Students engaged in an appeal process (e.g., a grade or conduct appeal) may retain their positions pending outcome of the appeal process.

Student organizations may establish additional requirements for leadership positions so long as such requirements do not violate the University Policy P-13.08-03/17 Policy Prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation.  Additional requirements are subject to review and approval by the University Commons & Student Involvement.  Sport Clubs’ additional requirements are subject to review and approval by Recreation and Wellness.
