Because obtaining a degree is the main reason for attending college, our chapters and the University place a large emphasis on academic achievement. All chapters require a minimum GPA to become and remain a member. All chapters also have educational programs to promote academic success.
To join any chapter at ERAU-Prescott, a minimum ERAU cumulative GPA of 2.50 is required if the student has an ERAU GPA.
Alcohol abuse is unhealthy and inconsistent with chapter ideals. All organizations are expected to uphold state and city laws, University policies, council policies, and their own inter/national policies regarding alcohol consumption. The University and its chapters strive to promote responsible alcohol use through a variety of educational programs.
Hazing is strictly forbidden by Arizona state law, University policy, and each chapter's inter/national and local policies and bylaws. Chapters recognize the seriousness of hazing and receive proactive training on a regular basis.
If you are concerned about any activity that may be taking place, please contact the Dean of Students Office at 928-777-3879 or email@example.com.
Research has shown that students who are involved are more likely to graduate and report greater satisfaction with their college experience. On average, members spend 2-3 hours per week in meetings and mandatory activities. Some chapters require more time than others and commitments may increase during busy times of year, but many students are successful in their time management. Holding a leadership role or volunteering for additional projects may also impact time commitments.
Not all chapters have the same financial expectations and many have payment plans or scholarships available. Most chapters require a one-time new member fee as well as semester membership dues. Funds go towards operations, social events, and programming for members. Some dues may go to inter/national organizations to provide additional resources like conferences, insurance, and more; however, all funds support our student participants.
While some members may choose to live together, the chapters or University do not have any official houses.
