The Student Government Association at Western Kentucky University is committed to
addressing student concerns and providing quality, signature services for students
on the Hill. Below, you will find a list of all of our signature services. If you
have any questions, feel free to contact us.
Each fall, WKU officials and SGA representatives tour the campus in search of locations needing safety improvements.
Now an SGA tradition, Blue Books and Scantrons are available for free in the SGA office.
The Student Senate commonly provides funding in order to extend the operating hours of the library during the week of final examinations each semester.
WKU SGA recognizes that identification cards are a necessary item that all students of Western Kentucky University need to possess to take advantage of requirements from professors, meal plans, and to enter residence halls. As such, our ID Voucher Program will partially cover the cost of 30 student identification cards, discounting $10 of the total WKU ID price of $20. These vouchers will be available to students who have never lost their WKU ID before.
Each Tuesday, any WKU student can address the Student Senate during the Special Orders portion of the meeting. According to the SGA Bylaws, "Any student of the University who has a matter to bring before the Senate shall be allowed to speak at this time for no longer than ten minutes."
SGA annually provides over $18,000 for campus organizations. Each organization can apply for up to $500.
WKU SGA partners the Raymond B. Preston Health & Activities Center to enable 30 part-time students to obtain a voucher that would pay for half ($17.50) of their semester Preston membership fee, reducing their out-of-pocket cost of a membership to $17.50.
This year, the Academic Affairs and Student Affairs committee and the Director of Academic and Student Affairs have been allotted $39,000 for scholarships for the student body. Students will be eligible to apply for study abroad and research conference scholarships.
The Student Government Association has arranged with the Office of the Registrar to provide students with 30 total vouchers that can be redeemed for free official transcripts. This idea was born out of the rising costs of tuition and fees and aims to reduce the financial burden on each student. To get a voucher or to learn more about the program, stop by the SGA office.
WKU SGA will cover the entire cost of 10 students for the one time $20 fee of the Counseling & Testing Center.
