National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) Fraternity & Sorority Membership Intake Process

Thank you for your interest in the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) fraternities and sororities at SIUE! Each National Pan-Hellenic Council fraternity and sorority brings in members at various times of the year through a process called the Membership Intake Process (MIP). All organizations governed by the National Pan-Hellenic Council have different requirements for membership. When organizations are looking to conduct a Membership Intake Process, many of them will host an informational meeting in which the criteria for membership are explained.  Such meetings are usually publicized via flyers on campus or via the chapters social media page.

NPHC and the United Greek Council will host a general informational called "Meet the Greeks" about all of its organizations for students who have questions or are unsure about the intake process.

Things to Know

  • NPHC fraternities and sororities typically do not accept a student for membership until the student has completed at least 12-24 hours of college credit with a minimum GPA requirement (set by each chapter). Prospective members must also demonstrate campus and/or community involvement.
  • In the event that one is interested in joining a NPHC fraternity or sorority, one is strongly encouraged to show interest by attending chapter programs and events, getting to know members of that organization, researching information about the organization in which one is interested, and by attending an interest meeting or informational for the chapter in which one is interested in.
