Eligibility Requirements for Social Fraternities & Sororities

In order to be eligible for membership in a social Greek organization, students must:

  1. Be a full-time matriculated student with at least 12 (post-high school) credit hours, or the equivalent of one full semester earned at SUNY Geneseo.
  2. Have a minimum cumulative GPA of at least a 2.0. Some organizations may require a higher minimum cumulative GPA for membership (typically a 2.25 or 2.5).
  3. Students over the age of 21, and first semester transfer students (as determined by their admit status) with demonstrated academic and overall success at their previous institution(s) can be considered for eligibility status by appealing for immediate eligibility to the Office of Fraternal Life. Students appealing for eligibility status must provide the Office of Fraternal Life with a copy of their unofficial transcript(s) from their transfer institution(s).

Some organizations have established a higher minimum GPA requirement and will make their own determinations of who is/isn’t eligible for membership into their respective organizations. First semester students, and those below the minimum GPA requirement, are ineligible to pledge. Students found violating this policy may be subject to College conduct action, which could result in the suspension of your privilege to join a Greek organization and could also result in the suspension of the fraternity/sorority.
