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


At New York University, we hold our sisters to a GPA requirement of 3.0, slightly higher than the national requirement. We're proud to say that our chapter currently holds an average GPA of 3.5!

We hold multiple study sessions every week to help our sisters succeed academically and offer tutoring. Our sisters are committed to helping each other achieve academically and are always available for help.
