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. An exception has been made for Nu Sigma Chi due to their long history on our campus.
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.
Effective July 12, 2017: Delta Chi Fraternity has revoked the charter of its SUNY Cortland chapter.
Effective June 13, 2017: SUNY Cortland has revoked its recognition of Delta Chi.
This means that while those brothers initiated in Spring 2017 (or earlier) can wear their letters, they have all been moved to inactive status within the Fraternity. It also means that Delta Chi cannot function on our campus -- no officers, no meetings, no social events (including mixers), no community service, no fundraising, no recruiting or initiating new members, no collection of dues, etc. It is possible that Delta Chi will be able to return to our campus but only once all current brothers have graduated and provided there is no indication of any underground activities taking place in their name.
The following organizations are currently recognized:
