NPHC Recruitment

National PanHellenic Council (NPHC) Recruitment Process

Unlike the other councils, traditionally African-American NPHC chapters conduct their membership selection or "membership intake process" independently and at different times.  Chapters usually conduct interest meetings that are relatively formal in nature.  Students must usually provide transcripts and letters of recommendation.  Note that NPHC organizations do not permit freshmen to join during their first semester and some require sophomore standing in order to apply for the intake process.

NPHC chapters embrace a lifetime commitment philosophy and aim to assure the continuance of academic achievement, political awareness, and community service. We strongly encourage those interested in the Membership Intake process to contact the respective NPHC organizations for more information.
