You are not alone! Part of your first semester at SAN is built to help you become better at time management, which is a valuable skill to have in both your academic and professional life. Although the pledging process is meant to challenge you, the entire active body of SAN will be a supporting network that will guide you through these challenges. 

Does SAN have a GPA requirement?

SAN has a GPA requirement of 3.0 or above. We encourage applicants to still apply as this is not a hard cut-off! We are more than willing to and have made many exceptions in the past. If this is a concern, please feel free to reach out to our email or any of our active members to discuss further!
