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 SGA. 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 SGA Constitution, which 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. SGA includes everyone, and represents the diverse student body of HCC. Active SGA members are committed to serving both the campus and the community-at-large.
Is it a hassle-free commitment?
No - you will find that, during the debates occurring in SGA meetings, 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. Overall, it is a great learning experience 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 the College as a whole.
