Standard 4: Associate GPA
Great chapters only recruit men with a 2.5 GPA or higher.
The North-American Interfraternity Conference, a trade association representing 75 fraternities, set standards for its member groups. At the 2013 Annual Meeting, leaders from these fraternities came together to consider updates to the standards. At the meeting, the GPA requirement to join was raised to a 2.5 GPA. All 75 organizations are expected to comply. Sigma Tau Gamma is excited to raise the standard for membership in fraternities and even encourages chapters to set a higher standard if they wish.

Traditional “library hours” are not the whole answer for academic success. This report describes the 5 activities of a successful scholarship program.
The final, and most important activity, is recruiting members who already excel in school. The standard during recruit is a 2.5 or high. However, a chapter that focuses recruitment on men with 2.5-2.74 GPAs is not going to reach the 2.75 chapter standard.
Principled Selection Criteria for Recruitment
When thinking about chapter scholarship, always remember that the best indicator of potential success is current and previous success. Let’s focus on recruiting men that already exemplify our principles, including learning! Opening membership is the number of brothers at the beginning of the school year. Chapters have fall and spring semester to recruit half of that number. Below is recruitment information to help you achieve your goal!
