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.

Please READ this entire page!

Eligibility Requirements:

1. 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.

2. Additionally you must be have a cumulative 2.50 GPA; some individual chapters/colonies maintain an even higher minimum GPA requirement. This requirement is verified by Student Life & Leadership. Any student who does not meet this minimum 2.5 GPA requirement is not permitted to go through recruitment and may not receive an invitation or bid from any fraternity or sorority with the exception of NPC sororities that determine their organization’s minimum GPA.

3. Students must be currently enrolled in at least 6 units at CSUSM, but cannot be enrolled through Extended Studies/Open University. 

4. You must be in good standing with the university conduct process and not on university probation.

FSL 101: New Member Education February 24, 2017, 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.
