All curriculum students who are regularly enrolled at Western Piedmont Community College and who have paid the student activity fee are entitled to vote in Student Government Association elections and to participate in all activities of the SGA. The College encourages student participation in institutional decision-making through Student Senate meetings that are open to all students.
The SGA is designed to promote the general welfare of the College in a democratic fashion and to facilitate communication between students, the faculty, and the administration.
It includes an Executive Council, made up of a President, Vice President, Parliamentarian/Public Information Officer (PIO), Secretary, and Treasurer.
A Student Senate, which is made up of students voted or appointed as representatives of each active, recognized club or organization on the campus during the regular school term is the legislative arm of SGA. There is one Senator per each club/organization with one vote allowed per each.
