In order to register for Sorority 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 with a cumulative GPA of 2.5.
While 2.5 is the minimum GPA requirement to go through sorority recruitment, please note that some sororities may have higher requirements for their specific chapter.
In order to register for Fraternity Recruitment, Georgetown College requires a freshmen male student to pass 12 hours with at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA. For an upperclassmen male student to go through Recruitment, he must have passed 24 hours and have at least 2.5 cumulative GPA.
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 (two days before Bid Day).
Note: This applies only to students in their first semester at Georgetown College. Once a student has completed a semester at Georgetown, transfer credits will no longer be counted towards eligibility.
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.
*Interpretations and final eligibility decisions will be made by the Director of Student Activities. In some cases, sororities hold continuous open recruitment in the fall semester. In those cases, transfer eligibility will be determined by the Director of Student Activities.
