|The Applicant must be a United States Citizen, enrolled and matriculated in an accredited undergraduate degree program at a college or university located in New York State. The program is designed for college juniors and seniors, though exceptional sophomores may occasionally be selected. Freshmen are ineligible. Students must be enrolled full time in the previous spring and current fall semester/trimester, possess a 3.0 grade point average or better, and meet their college/university requirements for off-campus study. A student’s eligibility status must be certified by their Campus Liaison Officer, Academic Advisor, Chairman, Dean or other duly authorized campus personnel. Majors in all accredited disciplines are accepted; pursuit of a degree in history or political science is neither a prerequisite nor an advantage to selection. Academic achievement, personal initiative and an avid interest in learning, along with maturity and a strong work-ethic, are essential for success. Campus Rules and Responsibilities Each student applying for a Senate Assistantship must contact their Campus Liaison Officer, Academic Advisor, Chairman, Dean or other duly authorized campus personnel to determine: the requirements for off campus study; if they are eligible to participate in such a program; the amount of credit they may receive for such participation; and the identity of their on-campus evaluator. College Credit The Senate does not and cannot award credit. To be eligible, each applicant must be able to earn campus-awarded credit for participation in the program. Advisement, evaluation, grading and granting of credit are the responsibility of on-campus faculty. Such faculty is responsible for academic planning, tracking, and evaluation of student participation based upon the Director of Senate Student Program’s confidential written evaluation of the student’s performance. Owing to the demands of the on-site program, the Senate imposes a limit of six (6) additional classroom credits pursued outside the program during enrollment. How To Apply Upon receipt of approval for off-campus study, the applicant must complete an application and submit it, along with required documents, to the CLO, who will remit the approved application to the Senate Student Programs Office. An application consists of the following: •A completed Undergraduate Session Assistant Application Form; •Official Transcripts of all collegiate work; •A one-page resume; •Three confidential letters of reference from persons familiar with the applicant’s academic abilities and professional aptitude; •A listing of three (3) legislative policy area preferences; •A six-eight (6-8) page paper or essay; •Two one-page memoranda (a policy proposal and rebuttal); •Personal Statement; •Certification of current coursework; and •Signed Student Statement.|
