General Membership

The Graduate Student Association — General Assembly

The General Assembly consists of representatives from the graduate groups of UC Davis, and has fiscal authority over the Graduate Student Association.  All departments send representatives to the Assembly equal to one Assembly Member per every thirty students (or fraction thereof). We take pride in being a graduate student association with an extremely high ratio of representatives to students, compared to other university graduate student associations.

Each year, department representatives must register with the Graduate Student Association in order to receive attendance credit and to be eligible to vote. Departments receive funding from GSA based on the attendance of representatives at general assembly meetings. To see the allocated number of representative for each department and basics for being a representative, check out the files below. Representatives can register here (log in to your UCD google account to have access to the page). In addition, representatives are required to sign up for the Graduate Student Association listserv to receive updates from the Association and all general assembly meeting materials. You can sign up for the listserv here.

For 2023-2024 our general meetings are Wednesdays from 6-8pm on the following dates: 10/4, 11/1, 12/6, 1/17, 2/7, 3/6, 4/10, 5/1, 5/29.

If you have a dispute with the number of representatives for your department, please contact the Secretary (
