Academic Resources

Scholarship is one of the core values of Greek Life at Michigan State. Every chapter has different GPA requirements that their members must meet each semester. Additionally, nearly every chapter has programs to help assist their members in need of help with their schoolwork.
Michigan State offers tons of resources, most of which are free, to help students achieve academic success.  Below is a list of some of the resources across campus. Students are also encouraged to meet with professors during office hours, and study regularly rather than cramming.
