  3. What's the GPA to join?

    Academic excellence is one of the most important ideals of each chapter, and they support the premise that academic responsibilities should receive the highest priority throughout their members’ academic careers. To this end, fraternities and sororities require a minimum grade point average for both joining and for remaining an active member. Each chapter requires its own minimum GPA for membership, however, a student must be enrolled as a full-time at the University of Mount Union student. In addition, monetary scholarships are sometimes available for those who are meaningfully involved in the chapter while excelling academically during their time in the organization. 

  4. What's the cost to be part of a fraternity or sorority?

    The cost of joining a fraternity or sorority at the University of Mount Union ranges from $400 to $600 for the year, with the most cost involved during your first semester of membership. The amount is larger in your first semester of membership because of initiation fees, national dues (if applicable), and insurance costs. It also includes your membership pin and certificate. During your membership, costs include national and local fees that pay activities like formals, brotherhood or sisterhood events, and other incidentals such as t-shirts. If cost is prohibitive, we encourage you to be in touch with the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership or the individual chapters’ treasurers to see if arrangements could be made for you. Many options are available, all you need to do is ask.
