NPHC Recruitment

Joining an NPHC Chapter

The National Pan-Hellenic Council receives new members via a delayed recruitment that is most commonly referred to as Membership Intake. The intake process for the National Pan-Hellenic Council is informal in the sense that it can occur at any point throughout a semester per the discretion of each chapter. Interested persons should contact the chapter of the organization they are interested in if any questions regarding membership arise. The chapters are interested in individuals who exemplify exceptional leadership ability, and those who are committed to education and service. Below are the steps that will best prepare you for the Membership Intake Process.

Step One: NPHC 2 Truths & A Lie
The purpose of NPHC 2 Truths & A Lie is to give students information about the various groups, membership requirements, cultural insights, and benefits of joining Greek Life. NPHC 2 Truths & A Lie is also an opportunity for Fraternity & Sorority Life to discuss important information about Hazing guidelines and the challenges of joining a Greek-letter organization.

Step Two: Research
We encourage students to research each organization in order to discern which chapter is a best fit for you. You can do this by comparing national websites and chapter websites. Attending Meet the Greeks in the Fall. You can attend programs of chapters to gauge comfort zone with different chapters. You can also contact chapter members or the NPHC Executive Board.

Step Three: Interest Meetings & Rush
Attend interest meetings of the organization that you have serious interest in. In order to determine which organization you are interested in, we encourage students to research each organization in order to discern which chapter is a best fit for you. Please note that some organizations do not conduct interest meetings. Also note that some organizations may take your attendance at Interest Meetings/Rush as an indicator of a set decision for membership intake.

Step Four: Membership Intake
Each organization takes individuals through a Membership Intake process. The process is comprised of an Interest Meeting/Group or Rush and a formal application process.

1.    Interest Meeting

2.    Formal Rush

3.    Interview and Selections

4.    Educational Lessons
