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 119 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

As an active member of Alpha Sigma Tau, you must maintain a GPA of at least 2.55. Not only does this uphold the values of education within our sorority, but pushes each member to do their best and help others out. Study hours are also held each week so that sisters can focus on their studies if they choose to. In the Fall semester of 2015, our chapter averaged an overall GPA of a whopping 3.34, first highest among all the sororities on campus!!! Then in the Spring semester of 2015, we had second highest GPA with a chapter average of 3.23!
