How to Join

Requirements to Join
Only currently enrolled students on the Atlanta campus of Georgia State University are eligible to join any Greek organization. Each Greek letter organization has grade point average and credit hour requirements specific to their chapter. Listed below are further details regarding the recruitment or membership intake process for each council.

Recruitment or Membership Intake
Recruitment or membership intake is a mutual selection process for joining a fraternity or sorority. It is a time for parents and aspiring students to discuss time commitments, define financial obligations and ask questions regarding the requirements of membership. Whether or not a student decides to join a fraternity or sorority, recruitment or membership intake is a great way to meet people, find out more information on Greek Life and get acquainted with student life at Georgia State University.

Interfraternity Council (IFC)
Chapters in the Interfraternity Council conduct a semi-structured recruitment process at the beginning of each semester. This is a mutual selection process that requires interested members to attend fraternity sponsored recruitment events. These events sometimes include information sessions where brothers and alumni discuss the unique aspects of their fraternity and share personal experiences with prospective members. Please take time to read the Expectations of Fraternity Members provided by the North-American Interfraternity Conference.

National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)
Chapters in the National Pan-Hellenic Council (also referred to as the Divine Nine) conduct membership intake at various times throughout the year. Each chapter has a process specific to their organization and will host an informational program for prospective members to better understand the membership expectations and application process. Marketing is generally conducted through flyers and campus advertising at least two weeks prior to any informational session.

Multicultural Greek Council (MGC)
Chapters in the Multicultural Greek Council are culturally based, but are not culturally exclusive, in membership. Each individual fraternity and sorority conducts membership intake at various times throughout the year. Information is generally provided through flyers and campus marketing at least two weeks prior to any informational sessions.

Panhellenic Council (PC)
Sorority recruitment is sponsored by Panhellenic Council and is a three day process in the fall semester designed to give a preview of the five National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) chapters on campus. Students will have an opportunity to explore the academic, service, leadership and sisterhood components for every sorority. All potential new members participating in the formal recruitment process must register and participate in all days of recruitment events.

Spring Recruitment is informal and does not require a woman to register. Not all Panhellenic sororities will be conducting a new member process. Students who are interested in joining during the spring semester should contact that organization directly using the public email address they have posted on Panther Involvement Network (PIN).
