Please read through the following information to begin the registration process. 



Academic Requirements

  • As required by the National Panhellenic Conference, there is not a GPA requirement to participate in formal recruitment at the University of Mississippi. 
  • Typical sorority average to extend a membership invitation is a 3.00 cumulative GPA. Women who have below a 3.00 GPA are advised they are at a greater risk to be released from the formal recruitment process due to their academics. 
  • For formal recruitment 2016, high school students who joined a sorority had an average cumulative GPA of 3.59 while college students had an average cumulative GPA of 3.42. 
  • First year students or students with less than 12 college credit hours will use their final cumulative high school grade point average as reported by their high school.  Students with more than 12 college credit hours will use their college cumulative grade point average as reported by their academic institution. 
  • To help students understand how their GPA may affect their formal recruitment experience, Panhellenic Council created Grade Zones to show how academics may factor in formal recruitment. 


            GPA Zones

            Green Zone = Your options are not likely limited based on your GPA. (3.0 + )

            Yellow Zone = Your options are more likely to be limited by your GPA. (2.8 – 2.99)

             Red Zone = Your options are very likely to be limited based on GPA. (2.79 and below)



  • Students should submit their final high school or college transcripts after graduation or course completion. 
  • Grades for formal recruitment are verified by the transcripts on file with the University of Mississippi.
  • Academic transcripts must reflect a cumulative GPA on a 4.00 scale. Because the high school or college understands courses and credits best, Fraternity & Sorority Life and the university do not calculate a cumulative GPA for formal recruitment. 
  • Please make sure the cumulative GPA on a 4.00 scale is listed on the transcript before it is mailed to the university. 
  • Transcripts should be mailed in as soon as possible, if applicable. 
  • Transcripts are mailed to: Office of Admissions, P.O. Box 1848, University, MS 38677-1848.
  • It is the students’ responsibility to ensure the University of Mississippi’s Office of Admissions has the more current transcript that includes a cumulative grade point average on a 4.00 scale. 


FERPA and Information Release Disclaimer

By electronically submitting this application, I understand I am granting permission to Fraternity & Sorority Life at The University of Mississippi to release information concerning my grades, disciplinary records, and other education records to the relevant chapter officials of the IFC or Panhellenic Councils’ member chapters. This action, though, does not require me to join a Greek organization, nor does it obligate any Greek organization to offer me membership. Before, during, or after the recruitment process, I hereby grant permission to the Fraternity & Sorority Life to release my semester and cumulative grades and disciplinary records to the relevant officials for as long as I am associated with the Greek community. This agreement supersedes all prior disclaimers.


Hazing Policy

The University of Mississippi prohibits hazing in any form. According to the educational website,, hazing “refers to any activity expected of someone joining a group (or to maintain full status in the group) that humiliates, degrades, or risks emotional and/or physical harm, regardless of the person’s willingness to participate.” According to the National Fraternity Executive’s Association and Fraternity Insurance Purchasing Group, hazing is defined as:


“…any action taken or situation created, intentionally, whether on or off fraternity premises, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. Such activities may include but are not limited to the following: use of alcohol; paddling in any form; creation of excessive fatigue; physical and psychological shock; quests, treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, road trips, or any other such activities carried on outside the confines of the house; publicly wearing apparel that is conspicuous and not normally in good taste; engaging in public stunts and buffoonery; morally degrading or humiliating games and activities; and any other activities that are not consistent with fraternal law, ritual, or policy or the regulations and policies of the educational institution”.


Violations of the University’s hazing policy may result in disciplinary action against any involved students and organizations. In addition to the University judicial system, students and organizations who participate in or condone hazing may subject themselves to criminal prosecution and/or civil liability.


I understand that participation in, or knowledge of, hazing and taking no action to stop it is in effect giving approval to haze.  I understand my responsibility not to allow any members of an organization (active members, inactive members, alumni/ae, or affiliates from other institutions) to haze any member, active or associate. Failure to report such activity of which I become aware may cause personal referral to the Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct.
