SEG is committed to "inspiring the geoscientists of tomorrow" and our Student Chapters are an excellent resource to increase interest among students of geophysics. The Student Chapter ranking and recognition is designed to empower SEG Student Chapters to join and lead projects that will address issues, challenges, or opportunities related to SEG's mission of promoting the science of geophysics. All Student Chapters are required to submit an Annual Activity Report once per year in order to stay active. The deadline for submitting the Annual Activity Report will always be announced here. Student Chapters are ranked based on the activities they report. To reach any of the three rankings below, you will need to demonstrate that your chapter participates in the following activities:

BASE Level

  • submit an annual report that includes:
    • membership roster
    • list of student chapter officers with contact information
    • list of activities performed and contacts made throughout the year

RIDGE Level

  • get involved in high school outreach efforts
  • participate in SEG student programs (SLS, SEP, Challenge Bowl, etc.)
  • submit an annual report
  • mentor other student chapters to climb higher!

SUMMIT Level

  • serve on SEG boards or committees
  • organize at least one student chapter activity every year (Challenge Bowl, IGSC, Field Trips, etc.)
  • get involved in high school outreach efforts
  • participate in SEG student programs (SLS, SEP, Challenge Bowl, etc.)
  • submit an annual report
  • mentor other student chapters to climb higher


To participate in the Student Chapter rankings, you need to do the following:

– Make sure you have a student chapter

  • Become a SEG Student member
  • Start a student chapter with your geo fellows

– Submit at least a membership roster and a list of officers.

You can only apply once per year to be ranked, but you have to submit your application in order to keep your Student Chapter active. To complete the Annual Activity Report, please login here. Once your application is received, it is reviewed by staff from SEG University and Student Programs to make sure it is complete. From there, it is sent to the Student Chapters subcommittee, who reviews the applications and nominates their candidates for Ridge and Summit levels.
