    Requirements and Expectations on Membership

    As stated in the Constitution of the Virginia Commonwealth University College Panhellenic Council, Article 15 Section 1: “A woman must be a regularly matriculated student to be eligible for recruitment and new membership. She must have a 2.75 cumulative high school GPA and/or 2.3 cumulative college GPA.”


    Financial Information

    All sororities entail financial obligations, though yearly fees vary among chapters.  It is necessary to consider these obligations before committing to an organization.


    Sorority membership can be more expensive during the new member period as one time fees such as the purchase of a badge are incurred at this time. Though in no way mandatory, the cost of “extras” such as T-shirts, jewelry, and favors vary with each individual.  Many women may also want to purchase clothing or other items representing their chapter. This too, is in no way mandatory. 


    If you have any questions regarding the cost of belonging to a sorority, please feel free to ask your Recruitment Counselor or a sorority member at any time during the recruitment process. Please see the chapters's financial requirements here
