Kennesaw State University fraternities and sororities seek to maintain high academic standards. Chapters support members through study sessions, workshops about study skills, test taking strategies, time management, developing relationships with professors, and offering study hours.
In order to be a part of our community, potential members must have a minimum 2.5 GPA. This number is based off of an individual’s most recent cumulative GPA, whether that is their high school, transfer, or Kennesaw State GPA. It is important to note that the Department bases our GPA calculation in conjunction with Kennesaw State University, meaning for high school and transfer GPAs that only core, non-elective classes are counted. For the Kennesaw GPA, the department utilizes the adjusted cumulative GPA for membership purposes.
Additionally, while the above listed GPAs are the minimum requirements to receive an invitation of membership into an organization, having this GPA does not guarantee membership. For many of our organizations, a new member must have a GPA that is at least equivalent to their organization’s average GPA that is listed below in the community grade report. Due to this number constantly changing, other than publishing the minimum GPA for each council, the Department is unable to confirm the actual GPA needed to receive an invitation for membership into an individual organization.
The Greek community also provides a number of incentives and recognition opportunities for those members who excel in the classroom. At our annual Awards Banquet, the Department of Fraternity and Sorority Life recognizes individuals and organizations that have demonstrated academic excellence.
Each semester, the Department of Fraternity & Sorority Life compiles grade information from each chapter to track progress. These reports are used to measure achievements and successes at a regional and national level.
