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 women of Belmont AΣT are committed to academic excellence. Our members are involved in the Honors program, Engaged Scholars, academic honor societies, and peer tutoring. Study hours and tutoring within the sorority are available so that sisters can provide additional help and encouragement to each other's academic pursuits. All members must maintain a GPA of 2.6, but we constantly strive to maintain the highest Panhellenic and Greek GPA.
