Academics are very important at Alpha Sigma Tau. The Sorority believes that academic achievement and strong scholarship are not only a part of sorority life, but are directly tied to a strong Sisterhood experience for each individual member and her chapter.
From our earliest days, Alpha Sigma Tau has been committed to what our Founders called “true scholarship.” In fact, a focus on education has been a staple of Alpha Sigma Tau’s history and Ritual for more than 115 years!
Invitations to join Alpha Sigma Tau are based in part on academic performance. Each potential new member must have a minimum 2.5 GPA before a chapter can consider her for membership – and some chapters have higher minimum GPA requirements. Nationally, our average GPA is just over 3.0
The Beta Mu Chapter at Salisbury University continues to place value on academics and strive toward achieving greatness! The chapter GPA requirement is now 2.65 and moves up .5 each Fall, as long as sisters continue to meet it. We set higher goals for ourselves and our sisters and give each other the necessary support to achieve them!
