What Are Some Aspects of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Pledging Process?

Any female student with a Delta Sigma Theta chapter on campus is eligible to apply if they meet the organization’s academic standards, as of 2015. Rush Activity is held to provide information about the sorority to those interested women. Rush must be attended to be eligible to pledge for membership.

To be eligible for membership, Delta Sigma Theta requires that the college or university is accredited, and prospective members must be working toward a baccalaureate degree, have completed 24 semester hours or equivalent, and have a cumulative GPA of 2.75. Applicants cannot be a standing member of another society in the National Pan-Hellenic Council.

Rush includes events like presentations, socials and community work so potential members can acquaint themselves with the activities of the individual chapter. Rush is hosted independently by each chapter, so activities will vary.

While these requirements are essential in the initial stages, they do not guarantee an invitation for membership; the applicant must receive a majority of votes from current chapter members.
