Student Government Association

The Student Government Association is a non-profit organization that operates with a $1.8 million budget run by student leaders. SGA works closely with the Administration of the university to serve the student body and have a positive impact on campus. The SGA is a combination of programming and government.

The Student Government is composed of 3 branches- Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. SGA has two programming boards S.L.A.M. (Student Life At Montclair), is responsible for major campus events such as Homecoming and campus concerts, and Players which is responsible for theatrical programming with shows like MILF, and Rocky Horror Picture show.

The Student Government oversees over 100 organizations! SGA offers free faxing, discount copies, free water, hot chocolate, coffee and tea, free condoms, postage stamps for purchase, and a notary service. Stop by the SGA office in the Student Center room 103.


The SGA was formed in 1925 as the “Student Council” and became a non-profit organization in 1934 known as the Student Government Association. The SGA is independent from the University and is composed of three separate but equal bodies: The Executive Branch, The Legislative Branch and The Judicial Branch.
