ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR JOINING
Academic achievement is an important value of the Baylor Greek Life community. Students must meet minimum requirements to participate in a recruitment or intake process. According to Baylor policy, a student must have previously earned a minimum of 12 hours of academic credit during one semester in residence at Baylor University and obtain a 2.67 cumulative GPA and a 2.00 current GPA to join a fraternity or sorority. However, many organizations require all potential new members to have a higher GPA to join their individual chapter. Grades are NOT rounded up in determining eligibility.
TRANSFER STUDENTS: A student is classified as a transfer if they have attended a college, university or junior college during a fall or spring semester AFTER high school graduation. If the only college work completed is dual credit or advanced placement hours, they are NOT considered a transfer student. Transfer grades do NOT apply to the Baylor GPA. In order to join during their first semester, a transfer student must have completed a minimum of 24 transfer hours (does NOT include dual credit or advanced placement) with a transfer GPA of a 3.0. Grades are NOT rounded up in determining eligibility.***
