Hillsborough Community College Student Services and Enrollment Management
Student Government Association (SGA)

Student Government Association (SGA) enables students to actively participate in the programs and policy-making procedures at HCC by serving as the means of communication between students and the administration. All students are members of the Student Government. Each campus has an SGA with its own President, Executive Board and Senate. It is the responsibility of the SGA to spend, in a fair and equitable manner, the Student Activities Fees which each student pays in his/her tuition.

Students interested in serving as senators are required to apply for a position, be enrolled at the campus they plan to represent, and be of good academic standing (i.e., minimum 2.0 Grade Point Average for all courses attempted inclusive of college preparatory). First term HCC students are exempt from this requirement.

All  campus SGA Executive Boards comprise the Inter-Campus Coordinating Council of Students (ICCCS). ICCCS meetings are held on a campus rotation basis, several times during each full term. Refer to Article IV - Organization of the Student Government Constitution. The SGA Constitution can be found in the HCC Student Activities Handbook.

Is it similar to Student Council?
Yes! However, SGA members are responsible fiscally for the Student Activities Fees which each student pays in his/her tuition.

Is it a clique?
No! We have a diversity of students from our geographic area whom are committed to service both the campus and the community-at-large.

Is it a hassle free commitment!
No! You will find that during the debates which occur in the SGA meetings that you will be tested. You will be asked to contribute much of yourself and in turn, will ask much of your fellow students, the faculty, and the Administration. As with everything we do in life, there are things you will love about SGA and things you detest. Overall, it is a great learning experience, one that will allow you to grow and become confident. And it looks good on your resume!

Your ideas and your commitment are important to the SGA, the Campus, and to the College as a whole.
