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.
