The selection process for the SMCC Hall of Fame begins when a graduate or community member is officially nominated by submission of a nomination form. Only those nominated by the public are considered for induction into the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame Committee does not select individuals for nomination or consider for induction anyone they wish. The committee can only discuss and vote on graduates or community members who have been previously nominated by the public at large. Once an individual has been nominated, they are on file and remain eligible for consideration forever. There are currently over 150 individuals on file with the Hall of Fame.
Athletes may only be considered for induction ten years after graduation.

The Hall of Fame Committee has its first meeting during the summer months. At that time, the committee reviews the information of everyone on file paying special attention to any new nominations. Committee members will also take this opportunity to make a case for nominees they feel are deserving. The committee will close the meeting by asking each member to return with a list of those they feel are deserving of induction into the Hall of Fame.
When the committee reconvenes for its second meeting, members will discuss their favorites for induction and somehow the group will narrow nominations down to the Hall of Fame class for that year. Consideration is given to a variety of factors when formulating a class and the meetings inspire spirited debate.
