RECRUITMENT ANNOUNCEMENT
Fall 2020 formal recruitment is going virtual! The College Panhellenic is working hard to detail all changes and adjustments made for this year’s process. Please continue checking your Campus Director and Georgia Southern email address for updates containing more information about upcoming changes. 

Is There a GPA Requirement to Participate In Formal Recruitment?

The GPA to register for recruitment is 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 recruitment, you can check your GPA using your online Admissions Status Check Page.

Current students with an established GPA may register for Primary Recruitment during their undergraduate collegiate career with a Georgia Southern GPA of 2.50 or higher based on at least 12 or more credits. Transfer students with a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher based on at least 12 or more credits may also register for Primary Recruitment.  As you’re looking at your membership options, please keep in mind that some chapters may have higher GPA requirement for membership

Green Zone = Your options are not likely limited based on your GPA. (3.0 + )

Yellow Zone = Your options are more likely to be limited by your GPA. (2.8 – 2.99)

Red Zone = Your options are very likely to be limited based on GPA. (2.79 and below)

How Much is the Registration Fee?

Primary Recruitment registration will open April 3rd and close on September 9th.

Not sure you want to participate in Formal Recruitment? That’s okay! Come join us on September 1st for Taste of Recruitment. You will get a taste at what Formal Recruitment will be like, and get an opportunity to meet some of the women before you register! This event is open to anyone who has registered, interested in joining, or on the fence about joining a sorority and wants to gain more information about the chapters. 

Continuous Open Bidding (COB)/ Spring Recruitment:

Formal Recruitment is the most common way to join one of our three Panhellenic organizations.  This process gives potential members the opportunity to learn about the all Panhellenic organizations on campus as well as their philanthropies, values and sisterhood bonds.  If you are interested in joining a Panhellenic organization, we recommend that you participate in Primary Recruitment, as many chapters will reach their capacity during this process.

The other, and less likely, option for joining a Panhellenic sorority is through Continuous Open Bidding (COB), which is an informal process that some, not all chapters may engage in. The chapters who have available space will participate in this process throughout the academic year. Chapters that will be participating in COB or Spring Recruitment will be announced at the start of spring semester. Please stay tuned to CPH social media for information regarding this announcement.
