Joining a Chapter

Academic Eligibility

In order to join a fraternity or sorority at Georgia Southern University, individuals must meet one of the following requirements:

  • Incoming freshmen must have a 2.75 or higher high school GPA, as calculated by the Georgia Southern University Office of Admissions. This GPA  is based on the Required High School Curriculum. This is NOT the final high school GPA listed on your transcript or your HOPE GPA. Before registering for any recruitment process, we encourage you to check your GPA using your online Admissions Status Check Page.
  • Current students with an established GPA may register for a recruitment process during their undergraduate collegiate career with a Georgia Southern overall GPA of 2.50 or higher based on at least 12 or more credits. Transfer students with an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher based on at least 12 or more credits may also register for a recruitment process.

As you’re looking at your membership options, please keep in mind that some chapters may have higher GPA requirement for membership. This requirement applies to both the Statesboro and Armstrong campus.
