Is there a grade requirement to receive a bid?
2.75 cumulative (CORE) High School GPA if coming straight from high school and a 2.50 cumulative GPA from college.
What if I don’t meet the required minimum GPA?
Unfortunately, there is not an appeals process for students who are under the GPA requirements. We recommend that if you do not meet the grade point requirement, take a semester to focus on academics, get involved with one of the many student clubs at the University of Arizona, and then consider joining a fraternity the following semester. If you choose to continue with the recruitment process, please know that your experience will be severely limited as the majority of fraternities (if not all) will not be able to extend you an invitation for membership, which is why we strongly suggest waiting until you meet the required grade point average
