Positions in the Senate

The ASUH is made up of four Executive Officers,  four Senators-at-Large, and 30 college Senators. All of these positions are up for election during the ASUH General Elections.

To run in any of the elections, a candidate must fill out and submit the candidate application form to the ASUH Office. Specific rules and dates are outlined for campaigning in the candidate application packet.

In order to run for Senate, you must meet the following requirements:

   1. Be a full time (12+ credits) classified, undergraduate student at UH Mānoa     

   2. Have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0  

As stated in the candidate application packet, candidates must obtain 25 nomination signatures from students in their college. However, candidates are unable to collect signatures, they may request to be directly nominated on the Senate floor by a current Senate member. To WAIVE the 25 nomination signatures and to be floor nominated, check off the box indicating your request in your packet. Candidates who receive a floor nomination must still complete the rest of the candidate packet and turn it in by the required deadline.


Candidates who are successful in their election are required to complete an Accept/Decline Form by the required deadline.


All candidates, regardless of their success, must complete a post-election Campaign Spending Report by the required deadline.
