To be eligible for recruitment you must have a minimum of a 2.0 Cumulative GPA.
Members of the Service Organization Community are required to maintain a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Students who have between a 2.0 - 2.5 during recruitment may submit an appeal through the appeals board housed within Student Leadership and Development. Upon approval from the Appeals Board and acceptance to an organization, these new members will be placed on the academic probation list and will be expected to meet the GPA requirements at the end of the next semester. Failure to meet the GPA requirement in the Spring of 2023 will result in removal from their organization.
To file an appeal, please fill out this form.
Please note that many organizations do not consider seniors for membership.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to wear anything specific throughout recruitment?
Come as you are! Other than being fully clothed, there are no dress code requirements for any recruitment events.
How do I prepare for events?
It would be helpful to think about potential questions to ask at the events. Look over each org's social media and write down your thoughts.
How many orgs can I apply to?
There is no maximum, as long as you meet the requirements for each organization. We strongly encourage applicants to apply to at least 3-4 organizations, as the process is competitive. Last year, students that applied to 3 or more organizations were 25% more likely to be accepted into an organization than students that applied to 1 or 2.
I'm nervous about the interview.. what can I do?
First, know that these interviews are meant to be casual ways for the organization to get to know you. While it may be awkward, rest assured that all the interviewers desire for you to succeed in putting your best foot forward. Never interviewed before? Career and Professional Development can help!
