# Membership Requirements

Membership criteria for Sigma Zeta are described in Article IV of the Sigma Zeta Constitution. Section 2 describes membership for college students as follows:

*Any college student whose major is in any of the natural sciences or mathematics, who has completed the equivalent of 25 semester hours toward [their] degree, including 15 semester hours in the natural sciences or mathematics and who has a grade-point average of 3.00 (A = 4.00) in the sciences and mathematics and a grade point average of 3.00 in all subjects including the sciences and mathematics, shall be eligible for election to active membership. If other rating scales are used, an equivalent grade-point ratio shall be required. If the student has previously attended other institutions of higher education, the grades attained there shall be included in computing the science-mathematics ratio and the cumulative ratio mentioned above.*
