How to Join a Fraternity or Sorority

To join a fraternity or sorority, you must go through membership intake or recruitment.

Before you go through membership intake/recruitment, it is important that you learn about what the different fraternities and sororities offer to you as a potential aspirant/new member. Also, it is important to remember to maintain a high academic performance, get involved in the community, and find outlets for leadership opportunities.  These elements aid in your interest to join a fraternity or sorority. 

Membership Intake & Recruitment Processes

APSU is home to fraternities and sororities governed by three different councils:

  • College Panhellenic Council (CPC) governs sororities and women’s fraternities. New members are recruited at the start of the fall semester.
  • Interfraternity Council (IFC) governs fraternities. Recruitment takes place at the start of every semester.
  • National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) governs historically African American fraternities and sororities. Member intake occurs at various times throughout the year and is advertised on fliers labeled "Interest Meeting," "Interest Tea," "Meet & Greet" or "Informational."
