Senate Page Program

Thank you for your interest in the United States Senate Page Program. The program is an outstanding opportunity for Tennessee students to be actively involved in the legislative body of the U.S. government.

The principle duty of a Page is to serve as a messenger, which involves the delivery of correspondence and legislative materials within the U.S. Capitol and Senate office buildings, assisting senators on the Senate floor and in the Senate cloakroom, and preparing the Senate Chamber before the start of each session.

There are 30 Senate Page positions, 16 for the majority party (Republicans) and 14 for the minority party (Democrats). The office of the Sergeant at Arms supervises the Senate Page Program.

Senate Pages who serve during the academic year take educational courses during their term. All courses are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

Requirements (No Exceptions Can Be Made)

  • Students are only eligible to be a Page the summer before, summer after or during their junior year;
  • Must be 16 or 17 years old; and 
  • Must have at least a 3.0 grade point average (GPA)
