Scholarship remains an important part of life for all University of South Alabama students, especially for Greek organizations. The primary purpose of the Greek community is to encourage and develop high scholastic performance among its members. Individual chapters promote scholarship by providing academic resources for their members including tutoring, study hours, and scholarships. Most chapters require members to maintain a minimum grade point average to remain in good standing and offer support to help them do so. More often than not, the Greek organizations grade point average is higher than the all-student grade point average.
