Each program has representatives to the Council who are elected on a proportional basis according to the number of students enrolled in the program. In addition, At-Large Representatives are elected from the student body as a whole.

A listing of DGSC Program Representatives and At-Large Representatives is available. DGSC elections for representatives are held in April, with nominations during February. The newly elected council elects Executive Officers and At-Large Steering Officers at the May meeting. (No more than three officers shall be from the same program.)

The new council begins its term July 1.
