GPA Requirements
Panhellenic does not set a GPA Requirement for participation in Recruitment. Each chapter has set their own standards for membership, which includes a minimum GPA for pledging. All female students enrolled at South Alabama are welcome to participate in Recruitment, but there is no guarantee that everyone will receive a bid or be invited back to houses after Round 1.

Green Zone: (3.0 GPA or higher): Your membership options are not likely to be limited based on your GPA
Yellow Zone: (2.6 – 2.9 GPA): Your membership options may be limited based on your GPA
Red Zone: (2.5 GPA or below): Your membership options are likely to be limited based on your GPA
