Officer Eligibility Requirements

Student Organization Officers must be fully registered, full-time undergraduate students at any school on the New Brunswick Campus of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, with at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA earned at Rutgers. First semester students are not eligible to serve as officers.

Exceptions to these requirements are as follows:

  • A new organization applying for recognition may have officers who are first semester transfer students. These students must have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA at their previous institution, and must provide transcripts proving this to the Student Involvement Office for review. New organizations cannot do any officer changes during their provisional period.
  • A student in their final semester who is registered only part-time may be accepted as an officer only with the approval of the organization’s advisor, as long as they meet all other eligibility requirements.
