Fraternity and sorority chapters in the NPHC conduct a process called Intake at different times throughout the year. There is no single, set time when Intake occurs. Chapters will usually announce an "Informational" meeting for students who are interested in membership. NPHC member chapters have strict requirements that prospective members must meet before receiving an invitation to join. It is highly recommended that interested students visit chapter and national websites for NPHC organizations they are interested in.
