SMU is a deferred recruitment campus, allowing students to connect first with the institution and focus on academic success. Students interested in joining one of our fraternities or sororities must:
- First-semester, first-year students must complete & pass 12 college credit hours in the previous semester to joining (defined as fall or spring term); may be completed at a previous institution (see below). Upper-class students must have a demonstrated ability to meet this requirement. (Dual credit & AP credit do not count)
- Achieve a 2.5 GPA; cumulatively and in the previous semester
- Not be placed on conduct probation or higher with the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards at any point in the current or previous semester to joining or initiation.
- Must be enrolled at SMU prior to the start of a recruitment or intake process.
*Transfer students (first semester at SMU will be same as recruitment process) will need to provide a transcript to show that the academic requirements above have been met at their previous institution. Transfer students should still plan to register by any deadlines set by the council they are interested in.
