Chapter Status Report

Following is a report of the current status of our recognized social fraternities and sororities (this list does not include academic/career-oriented, Greek-letter organizations). If you are uncertain about the campus recognition of any chapter, please contact OSL.

RECOGNIZED AND IN GOOD STANDING
The following organizations are currently recognized by the University of California, Santa Barbara and are considered to be in good standing. Good standing indicates that an organization is fulfilling its ongoing accreditation requirements (i.e., Standards of Excellence) and does not have any recent, substantiated cases of violations of University policies related to the health and safety of participants. However, recognition and good standing are not a guarantee of future organizational performance or an indication of reduced risk. All organization membership and and participation in activities carries with it financial, physical, emotional, and reputational risk.

INTERIM SUSPENSION STATUS (INVESTIGATORY SUSPENSION)
The following organizations are recognized, but the Dean of Student Life has placed them on an interim suspension status as a precaution in case allegations of behavioral misconduct prove to be true. This precaution is implemented on a case-by-case basis in order to limit further injury to community members and further liability to organization officers. Interim Suspension Status is not implemented as a punitive measure. Following the completion of an investigation, organizations will either be placed on Probation/Suspension Status (below) or returned to Recognized and In Good Standing Status (above).

Recognized fraternities and sororities are prohibited from engaging in organizational events (formal or informal, regardless of location) with organizations on interim suspension status. 

  • Sigma Delta Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Colony (USFC) - placed on interim suspension on July 21, 2017
  • Gamma Zeta Alpha Fraternity, Inc. (USFC) - placed on interim suspension on February 12, 2018

PROBATION OR SUSPENSION STATUS (SANCTION)
The following organizations are recognized, but the Dean of Student Life has sanctioned them with a temporary change in status, which includes loss of privileges and/or additional requirements, as a result violating University policies that apply to recognized social fraternities and sororities.

Recognized fraternities and sororities are prohibited from engaging in organizational events (formal or informal, regardless of location) with organizations on suspension status. (Events with organizations on probation status may be permitted; see the terms of the specific sanction listed above.)
