The Florida Greek Standards Accreditation Program at the University of Florida is a set of guidelines and achievements that establishes minimum operating standards for social sororities and fraternities. It also provides opportunities to demonstrate success above and beyond the minimum expectations.
Based on the community’s tenets of scholarship, leadership, service and community, this program is designed to identify and encourage high ideals, principles, and standards critical to the success of each organization and its members. Originally created as simply a minimum standards program, Florida Greek Standards has since been updated as an accreditation program with its development including input from university staff, students, chapter advisors and other members from the community and fraternal movement. Through the accreditation assessment, the progress and accomplishments of each chapter can be monitored relative to meeting the established standards and opportunities for excellence.
In addition to complying with all applicable University rules, regulations, policies, and procedures, social sororities and fraternities at the University of Florida are expected to maintain accreditation. The Florida Greek Standards are divided into eight sections: Scholarship, Services, Leadership, Community, Alumni/Alumnae Relations, Risk Management, Administrative Affairs, and Facility Management. Each section is described below along with requirements and recommendations for success for organizations.

In March of 2020, due to COVID-19, all in-person student/organization activities and events were cancelled. As a result, the 2019-2020 Chapter Accreditation Status has been suspended in fairness to all chapters. The Accreditation Program will continue in the 2020-2021 school year with some adjustments to account for the Coronavirus pandemic.
