Joining a Fraternity or Sorority
The process of joining a fraternity or sorority is one of mutual selection. Fraternities and sororities use different means to acquaint themselves with interested students and to allow prospective members to learn about the organization. The process to join depends on the type of fraternity or sorority, which are categorized below by the governing council that oversees each different type.
While individual chapters may have additional requirements you must meet in order to receive an invitation to join, below are the basic requirements for all organizations:
- A full-time UNCP student
- Must have attend a Prospective Member session prior to being extended a bid or invitation of membership (starting Fall 2023)
- Must complete the Aspirant Verification form
- 2.5 Overall Grade Point Average (Some organizations may require a higher GPA).
- Note: Freshman students have the ability to join (based on the standards of the organization) starting their first semester. Academic eligibility will be based on the student’s high school grade point average.
The University of North Carolina at Pembroke recognizes fall and spring semester new member processes. No new member processes may occur during the summer or when the university is not in session.
Academic eligibility for new member processes will be based on the current academic standard for good academic standing (see academic section) or the organization’s academic requirement, whichever is higher. This applies to freshman and upper-class students alike. Academic eligibility must be verified before a membership invitation is extended.
