Chapter Status – Statesboro
The information on this website is provided in the spirit of transparency and accountability. Fraternities and Sororities at Georgia Southern University are self-governed, and, therefore, responsible for their choices and actions. Academic/Disciplinary infractions are reported on this website only if a student organization is found responsible following appropriate due process procedures, if the chapter falls under academic probation or if the chapter is placed on interim suspension by their national organization or the university.

Institutional sanctions are sanctions imposed by the institution as part of the Conduct process in regards to alleged violations of the Code of Student Conduct. The following list of sanctions is intended to show the range of sanctions that may be imposed on a Student Organization. This list is not to be regarded as all-inclusive but rather as a sample of sanctions that may be imposed. For additional and specific information concerning the Student Organization Conduct Process please reference Chapter 10 of the Code of Student Conduct.
- Organizational Disciplinary Warning: Formal notice from the Office of Student Conduct indicating further violations may result in more severe sanctions.
- Restitution: Requiring restitution allows for the compensation of loss, damage or destruction caused by a Student Group or Student Organization’s Misconduct. Compensation may take the form of appropriate service, and/or monetary or material replacement. Requests for property or money to be exchanged between parties in the Conduct process will be referred to mediation. The Office of Student Conduct will not take responsibility for the facilitation of these exchanges.
- Organizational Disciplinary Probation: A status in which a Student Group or Student Organization is considered to not be in good disciplinary standing with the University. The Student Group or Student Organization may seek and add members and host activities unless otherwise specified. Further violations may result in a temporary or permanent Organizational Disciplinary Suspension.
- Organizational Deferred Suspension: A Student Organization placed on Deferred Suspension will be allowed to remain recognized pending the completion of certain assigned sanctions or conditions. If any one condition or sanction is not met within the time allotted, the Student Organization will be consequently charged with Failure to Comply. If the conditions placed on the Student included a prohibition of additional disciplinary findings, a Student Organization on Deferred Suspension may be suspended following the exhaustion of all appeals and/or appeal periods at the campus level for additional violations of the Code of Student Conduct. In order to be considered to return to Georgia Southern University after Disciplinary Suspension, the Student Organization must complete all sanctions and conditions originally assigned.
- Educational Sanction(s): An educational sanction may consist of the assignment of specific projects to be performed by a Student Group or Student Organization, such as writing a research paper on a specific topic, performing community service hours, attending an educational program, and/or writing reaction papers on a specified topic. Educational sanctions might also include completing mandated alcohol, drug or other behavioral education programs and/or enrolling in web based online alcohol and drug education programs.
- Loss of Privileges: Exclusion of specific privileges such as restriction/exclusion from activities consistent with the violation committed, for a designated period of time.
- Organizational Social Probation: During the period of social probation, the Student Group or Organization must not host nor participate in any social events to include any event where alcoholic beverages are/will be served, formals, semi-formals, homecoming activities, tailgate events or any other event in which the purpose is purely socialization or entertainment. Student Groups or Student Organizations may host and participate in chapter meetings, council meetings, business meetings, philanthropy events, and any educational sessions offered through the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and/or your national office.
- Organizational Disciplinary Suspension: A status in which the University recognition of a Student Group or Student Organization is removed for a definite period of time. During a period of Organizational Disciplinary Suspension, the Student Group or Student Organization may continue to occupy or hold property, but may not seek or add members, hold or sponsor events, or sponsor or attend any events that are social in nature.
- Organizational Expulsion: A status in which the University recognition of a Student Group of Student Organization is permanently revoked. The Student Group or Student Organization may no longer function or have a presence on University property or at University sponsored activities.
