Standards of Excellence

Relevant Paperwork

Standards of Excellence submissions for the 2016 year are due Friday, March 3, 2017 at 5pm (PST).


San José State University (SJSU) seeks to recognize and foster relationships with those Greek-letter organizations that contribute positively to the community and the academic mission of SJSU.

The Standards of Excellence have been designed to indicate what San José State University expects from each chapter. In addition, the standards show what sets fraternities and sororities apart from other student organizations. It is required that each chapter meets these minimum standards in order to be considered in good standing with the University, and to maintain recognition.

The standards of excellence have been designed to recognize the strongest Fraternities and Sororities at SJSU. Chapters that achieve the Silver and Gold Laurels have gone above and beyond what is expected of the fraternity and sorority community at San José State University.
