Our office is responsible for every aspect of Greek Life: we advise the leaders of our chapters and governing councils; create educational, risk management, and leadership programming opportunities; act as liaisons to neighbors of the fraternity and sorority houses; and work with the inter/national headquarters of each organization to reduce risk, enhance programs, and ensure the advancement of fraternity and sorority life on the Tulane University campus.
Fraternity and Sorority Programs is committed to fostering a positive co-curricular experience for students who choose to affiliate with a Greek organization. Through its various programs, the department is committed to supporting the valuable learning experience that the Greek community offers.
Office of Fraternity & Sorority Programs
Please list information about the organizations selection process and include membership requirements if applicable.
The Tulane University Fraternity/Sorority Community participates in deferred recruitment, meaning entering first-time first semester freshmen may not join fraternities and sororities. Deferred recruitment allows students the opportunity to adjust to academic life at Tulane before taking on the additional time commitment of a Greek organization.
To be eligible to participate in recruitment or intake, prospective members must:
- be full-time, degree-seeking Tulane students
- have earned 12 hours with a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average
- be in good standing with Tulane (not on disciplinary probation)
These are the minimum requirements set by the university. Each fraternity or sorority has its own policies regarding membership, and many groups have higher requirements.
