Ways to Prepare for Sorority Recruitment
Verify cumulative grade point average
As part of the University application process, students are to send in their final transcripts to the Office of Admissions immediately after graduation/course completion. The student should work with their guidance counselor/advisor at their high school or academic institution to ensure a cumulative grade point average on a 4.00 scale is listed on their transcript. No transcripts should be mailed to the individual fraternities or Office of the Dean of Students. Please remember some guidance counselors/advisors may leave for summer break, so please make sure the request for final transcripts are sent immediately after graduation or course completion.
The grade point average listed on the transcript as reported by the high school or academic institution is used for formal recruitment and made available to approved individuals within Greek Affairs and individual fraternities.
