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 a full time student enrolled at SUNY Cortland;
-- Cannot be on either academic probation or academic warning;
-- Cannot be a first semester, first year student;
-- Must have completed the necessary number of credit hours (12 for continuing students and 24 for incoming transfer students);
-- Must have the necessary cumulative GPA (Minimum required by each recognized organization for continuing students and 2.5 for incoming transfer students). Incoming transfer students must provide a copy of their transcript(s) to our office for verification (unofficial copies are accepted). Academic eligibility is reviewed by the Associate Director of Campus Activities and Greek Affairs.
