How to Join

  • Greek Life in the Oak GroveWhen a student chooses to join a fraternity or sorority, they will join a chapter, and each chapter is governed by one council. At IUP there are four councils, each with a unique recruitment process. All recruitment is deferred, which means that students may participate in the recruitment process only when they meet the following criteria:

    • They are enrolled as full-time undergraduate students.
    • They earn and maintain a minimum 2.50 cumulative grade-point average. Some chapters may follow a higher cumulative grade-point average requirement.
    • They have successfully earned a minimum of 12 credit hours at IUP or transferred to IUP with a minimum of 12 credit hours from another college or university. Credits accumulated during high school do not count towards this minimum.
