Student Leader Eligibility Policy

This policy establishes the minimum University requirements for Student Leaders.

University Policy SA-10.05-10/18

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 as a degree-seeking student
  • Have and maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) for UWF course work of at least 2.50 or have a UWF Semester GPA of at least 2.50 in the most recent fall or spring semester
  • Not be on academic or disciplinary probation.

Students engaged in an official appeal process (e.g., a grade or conduct appeal) will retain their leadership positions pending the outcome of the University appeal process.  Students who have been issued interim measures will not retain their leadership position unless expressly authorized by the Dean of Students.

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 Student Involvement. Sport Clubs’ additional requirements are subject to review and approval by Recreation and Wellness.
