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 and Leadership 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.
