There are six standing committees created by the Constitution of the Student Government Association. Most of SGA's tangible work is done through committees. Each committee is comprised of SGA senators elected by the students and may contain an executive officer as well.
Student Services Committee
The Student Services Committee deals primarily with matters and services provided by the Department of Auxiliary Services. They work closely with the department to help determine business hours of on-campus dining facilities, parking and student concerns among other tasks. This committee is chaired by a senator appointed by the SGA President.
Senate Rules and Oversight Committee
The Senate Rules and Oversight Committee deals with the internal workings of Student Government as well as assisting with public relations and elections. The committee also oversees the approval process of Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) on Campus.

Public Relations Committee
The Public Relations Committee is responsible for getting the voice of the students to the ears of the Student Government Association as well as informing the student body of the services that are available to them through the Student Government Association. This committee is chaired by a senator appointed by the SGA President.
Academic Travel Fund Committee (ATFC)
The Academic Travel Fund Committee provides limited financial support to students who are presenting scholarly research or a project presentation at an academic conference or workshop. This committee is chaired by the SGA Treasurer.
Campus Issues Committee
The Campus Issues Committee is a collection of ad-hoc committees that seek to gather information on issues important to the student body while suggesting and implementing policies that will better the lives of students at Georgia College. These committees have been created to deal with issues that the students have voiced concern about and that can be dealt with immediately. This committee is chaired by the SGA Vice President. The current ad-hoc committees are:
- Student Emergency Fund
- Facility Usage
- Textbook Assessment
The Appropriations Committee deals with bills referred to them by the Senate. They consider, review, and recommend allocations on senatorial bills to be approved by a vote of the full senate. This committee is chaired by a senator appointed by the SGA President.
