Congratulations on your interest in seeking the South Orange County Community College District (SOCCCD) Student Trustee position for the 2017-2018 school year.  
Please read the entire Trustee Election Packet to evaluate your interest and eligibility for this district-wide position.  If you pursue your candidacy, pay close attention to the Student Trustee Election Timeline.  
Running for office requires time and energy during the election process, and requires a time commitment from you that begins Summer 2017 and runs through Spring 2018.  Ensure that your own personal schedule is compatible with the SOCCCD Board of Trustees meeting times. Meetings currently occur Monday evening and are typically once a month at 6:00 p.m.
Per Board Policy 104 (BP 104) the 2017-2018 SOCCCD Student Trustee will be nominated and elected only by Saddleback College students and candidates must also be a Saddleback College student. The student trustee, however, represents the entire district and must be ready to travel to all SOCCCD locations (Saddleback, IVC, and ATEP) to adequately represent the entire student body of the SOCCCD.
Note:  South Orange County Community College District Board Policy 104 requires the Student Trustee be currently enrolled in and maintain no less than 5 units, have completed no less than 12 units of credit, and have a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average at the time of election and throughout the term of office.
