For Parents

The Greek Life office oversees 35 social fraternities and sororities. Social is defined as any Greek lettered organization that exists for the purpose of creating a network of students, fostering friendships, and fulfilling a particular mission that is complimentary to the university. Social fraternities and sororities are not directly tied to any college, major, or academic purpose (i.e. honor societies) but chapters do excel in academics with members representing all majors and colleges at Cal Poly. The 35 chapters are divided into three councils:
Cal Poly Greek Life
Panhellenic Council (PHA)
United Sorority and Fraternity Council (USFC)


Our chapters strive to set the standard for academic achievement among all Cal Poly student organizations. Click here for the most up to date grade reports.


Depending on the chapter and council, dues will vary in price. Most chapters charge on a quarterly basis (summer dues are not charged).
IFC dues average $200 – $350 per quarter
Panhellenic dues average $300 – $450 per quarter
USFC dues average $50 – $100 per quarter


Some chapters have housing available for students, but housing is not regulated by Cal Poly. All contracts, agreements, and living situations at any fraternity or sorority house must be handled through the chapter and the master lease holder.


Due to California Title 5 non-compliance the following organizations are not recognized by Cal Poly:
Alpha Gamma Omega
Alpha Delta Chi
Such organizations require members to have an affiliation to a particular religion and therefore cannot be sponsored by the university. These organizations are separate from the university but have chapters in San Luis Obispo for anyone interested in joining.
