Recruitment

Deferred Recruitment

Because the University of North Georgia believes that first-year students need to focus on academics first to ensure the most successful transition to college possible, we practice what is known as Deferred Recruitment. This provides the opportunity for first-year students participating in recruitment to become accustomed to college classes, get involved in other activities, and make friends before joining a fraternity or sorority. Deferred Recruitment also offers a better opportunity to learn about the commitments and meaning of sorority and fraternity membership prior to joining.

Eligibility Requirements

Fraternity and Sorority Life at the University of North Georgia is located at the Dahlonega Campus, but any UNG student who meets the below criteria may seek membership.

To be eligible to seek membership in a fraternity or sorority at UNG, the student must be a full time enrolled student in a baccalaureate or associate program. In addition, they must meet the following criteria before pursuing membership in a Fraternity and Sorority:

  • Cadets must be off Quarters (2.5 GPA and 14 credit hours)
