As required by the National Panhellenic Conference, there is not a GPA requirement to participate in primary recruitment at Clemson University.
- Typical sorority average to extend a membership invitation is a 3.00 cumulative GPA. Women who have below a 3.00 GPA are advised they are at a greater risk to be released from the primary recruitment process due to their academics.
- For 2016 primary recruitment, freshmen who joined a sorority had an high school cumulative GPA average of 3.74 and upperclassmen had an average cumulative GPA of 3.36.
- Freshmen or students with less than 12 college credit hours will use their final, cumulative, high school grade point average as reported by their high school. Students with more than 12 college credit hours will use their college, cumulative, grade point average as reported by their academic institution.
To help students understand how their GPA may affect their primary recruitment experience, the Panhellenic Council created Grade Zones to show how academics may factor in primary recruitment.
Green Zone = Your options are not likely limited based on your GPA. (3.0 + )
Yellow Zone = Your options are more likely to be limited by your GPA. (2.8 – 2.99)
Red Zone = Your options are very likely to be limited based on GPA. (2.79 and below)
Panhellenic will be providing each PNM a round 1 t-shirt and a round 2 t-shirt to wear during recruitment. Images of the 2018 t-shirts will be placed below so that you can plan your outfits. For now, please enjoy viewing the 2017 t-shirts.
Round 1 T-Shirt
The navy t-shirt is for both days of Round 1 (Tuesday, August 14th and Wednesday, August 15th). This t-shirt does not have anything on the back.
Round 2 T-Shirt
The purple shirt is for Round 2 (Thursday, August 16th). This is the back of the shirt that you are viewing. On the front of the shirt, there is a small design on the left pocket area.
