Student Government elections take place once each academic year to elect the Student Body Presidents and Vice Presidents, as well as Senators representing their respective Colleges within FIU. The Election process takes place every year on both at MMC and BBC.

All officials elected serve for a one-year term, except for the position of Chief Justice that serves for two consecutive years. Voting takes place for two days at various polling locations on campus. If you have any questions regarding elections, you can contact the Elections Coordinator or Commissioner in the SGA office at GC 211 or WUC 301.

To qualify to run in the elections, a student must fill out the appropriate forms with the Elections Coordinator.
