Eligibility for Greek Recruitment
In order for a male student to go through Recruitment, Georgetown College requires a freshmen male student to pass 12 hours with at least a 2.3 cumulative GPA. For an upperclassmen male student to go through Recruitment, he must have passed 24 hours and have at least 2.3 cumulative GPA.
In order for a female student to go through Recruitment, Georgetown College requires a freshmen female student to pass at least 12 hours with a 2.5 cumulative GPA. For an upperclassmen female student to go through Recruitment, she must have passed at least 24 hours will a cumulative GPA of 2.5.
The Georgetown College transcript will be the document to be used in most cases. If a student has established at least 12 hours at Georgetown College, only the Georgetown College transcript will be used to determine eligibility.
- Females waiting for an improvement (e.g. grade change, winter term posted) must have it confirmed by the Registrar by 12:00 noon Day 2 (Thursday) of Recruitment.
- Males waiting for an improvement (e.g. grade change, winter term posted) must have it confirmed by the Registrar by 12:00 noon on the second Thursday of Recruitment (one day before Bid Day).
Georgetown College must have accepted at least 12 hours at a previous institution(s) for the student to be eligible. All grades will be taken into consideration, not just the classes Georgetown College accepts.
For example: A student took 15 hours at X College. Georgetown College accepts 12 of the hours. Georgetown College did not accept one class (3 hours) because the College does not accept classes with grades lower then a C. Three classes accepted were C’s and one was a B. The one not accepted was a D. The 12 hours passed makes the student eligible, but when all the grades, including the one Georgetown College did not accept, are calculated, the student is ineligible due to the 2.0 GPA.
CLEP Exams- if the hours show on the transcript, they will be counted toward the minimum hours needed.
Advance Placement (AP)- if the hours show on the transcript, they will be counted toward the minimum hours needed.
Transfer Hours- students may use transferred hours to meet the minimum hour eligibility as long as they have at least 8 hours at Georgetown College. Once a student reaches 9 hours at Georgetown College, only the Georgetown College GPA will be used. The transferred GPA will not be calculated into the GPA. Note: A student cannot take a winter term class away from Georgetown College to bring up their Fall GPA.
*Interpretations and final eligibility decisions will be made by the Director of Greek Life.
*In some cases, sororities hold continous open recruitment in the fall semester. In those cases, transfer eligibilty will be determined by the Area Coordinator for Greek Life.
