Student Court of Appeals
The Student Court of Appeals considers citation appeals from currently enrolled students related to breaches of parking and transportation regulations. The university's traffic and parking regulations provides a method of safe vehicular and pedestrian traffic for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus.
Additionally, the court considers sanctions and appeals regarding SGA elections. The court has the jurisdiction to decide its own court rulings in that St. Edward’s University and its properties are privately owned, and all actions taken upon said property are under the jurisdiction of St. Edward’s University and its enforcers.
