Maintaining Full-time Student Status

The student trustee must maintain full-time student status during the position’s two-year tenure. Students must be able to confirm that they will have sufficient time to take on the responsibilities of serving on the board, with no negative impact on their academic careers.

Undergraduates who anticipate receiving degrees during their terms must be able to document serious intent to attend graduate school—such as copies of formal applications, proof of completion of required exams (e.g., the GRE), letters of intent, and, if possible, letters of acceptance into a program.
