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 fraternities or sororities.

Update: Effective immediately Nu Sigma Chi Sorority has been suspended through December 2015.  Sisters cannot hold chapter meetings, recruit new members, collaborate with other SUNY Cortland or community organizations, or conduct any chapter business.

The following organizations are currently recognized:

Social Sororities:

Social Fraternities:

NOTE: Effective July 30, 2013, Pi Kappa Phi National pulled the charter of the SUNY Cortland Zeta Omicron chapter.  The College also pulled its recognition.  Undergraduate brothers were granted alumni status and can wear their letters but no other Pi Kappa Phi and/or Zeta Omicron presence is permissible.  If an underground presence takes place it will negatively impact the future possibility of Pi Kappa Phi returning to campus.
