How do I join?

Fraternity & Sorority recruitment is held at the beginning of each Fall and Spring semester. During recruitment, chapters/colonies host events for interested students. Information sessions and pre-recruitment events are coordinated by the Greek Leadership Council and promoted prior to both the formal (spring) and informal (fall) recruitment periods.

CSUSM has a deferred recruitment process, meaning that students must have completed 12 college units in order to join a fraternity or sorority. Transferred college units and AP credit can meet this requirement. Additionally you must be have a cumulative 2.50 GPA; some individual chapters/colonies maintain an even higher minimum GPA requirement. Students must be currently enrolled in at least 6 units at CSUSM, but cannot be enrolled through Extended Studies/Open University. If you have any questions about eligibility, please contact us PRIOR to registering. Visit SLL or contact us at 760-750-4970.

FSL 101: New Member Education February 26, 2016, 12:00-5:00pm
USU Ballroom

Each Fall and Spring new member of a fraternity or sorority is invited to join us for FSL 101 which covers five major areas of education: alcohol/drugs, hazing, sexual assault, diversity/inclusion, and FSL community development.

Using videos, group activities, and reflection, new members are engaged in critical thinking and dialogue about how they can keep themselves and others safe while supporting a community welcoming of all. We are diving into what does it really mean to be Greek at CSUSM.
