Fraternities and Sororities - SUNY Cortland

Fraternities and Sororities

Fraternities and sororities are recognized by the College through the Campus Activities and Corey Union Office. Recognition allows chapters to have a relationship with the College along with active membership and involvement in the Greek system and its governing boards. In order to be recognized by the College, all fraternal organizations must be associated with a National fraternal organization. 

To be eligible to become a member of a fraternity/sorority an individual must be enrolled at SUNY Cortland, be verified as having received an overall GPA of 2.0 or better, and have completed at least 12 credit hours at the College. Transfer students must have a minimum of 24 post high school credit hours and at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA. The College does honor the higher GPA eligibility requirements of any of its recognized fraternal organizations.  Academic eligibility is reviewed by the Associate Director of Campus Activities and Greek Affairs. 

First-semester, first-year students are not eligible to join any fraternity or sorority.
