Becoming an Honor Council Member

The process of becoming an Honor Council Member varies depending on whether you are an undergraduate student, a graduate student, or a faculty member. The application/nomination process for each is provided below.

Undergraduate Student Honor Council members

Applications are available at MSC Open House at the start of the Fall Semester. Aggie Honor System Staff will be available to answer questions about serving on Honor Council or the application process.

The selection criteria includes:

  • Overall GPR of at least 2.0. Freshmen may join on the condition that they maintain at least a 2.0 GPR. Returning students must have had a 2.0 or better for the previous Spring semester.
  • Ability to serve a two year term
  • Must be in good standing with the University.
  • Exemplify a desire and dedication to ensure the Aggie Code of Honor is upheld.

Approximately 100 applications are available for distribution, so do not wait until the end to come by the table.

Applications are due back to the Honor System Office at 5pm on the Friday after MSC Open House.

Aggie Honor System staff will be at MSC Open House to answer questions about serving on Honor Council.

Selected student government leaders and Aggie Honor System staff work together to review the applications and develop a final list of new Honor Council members.

The list is posted by Student Government (all applicants will be notified when the list is posted).
