How to Join a Fraternity or Sorority

Interested in joining one of our fraternities or sororities? Joining one of our organizations is a big decision, so we have provided you with a comprehensive overview of what each process entails. Each council has a unique way of selecting new members, so click the links below to learn more about how to join!


Interfraternity Council Informal Recruitment

Recruitment, simply stated, is the membership selection process. Across the nation, universities execute this process at the beginning of their fall or spring semester. Here at OSU our IFC recruitment process is informal, meaning that the bulk of our recruitment occurs during the summer and in the spring semester. Oklahoma State's Interfraternity Council (IFC) has implemented a registration process for potential new members of OSU fraternities.

Multicultural Greek Council Intake

The Multicultural Greek Council member organizations recruit potential new members throughout the year on an informal basis through a process known as "Intake." Each member organization of MGC has their own way to recruit new members. This is why it is important to get to know each organization to understand their unique process. Each organization has a different set of membership requirements for academic success, community and college involvement.

National Pan-Hellenic Council Intake

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) participates in a deferred recruitment commonly known as the Membership Intake Process (MIP). Before an individual can join a NPHC organization, he or she must have accumulated 12 or more credit hours at Oklahoma State, earned a 2.5 cumulative GPA, be in good standing with the University and attended NPHC Convocation in the academic year (or a semester before) the student plans to participate in intake.

Panhellenic Council Formal Recruitment

We have two opportunities for women to join one of our 13 National Panhellenic Conference sororities at Oklahoma State University. "Fall Recruitment" takes place one week prior to the first week of school, and all 13 chapters participate. "Continuous Open Bidding" is an informal recruitment process that begins on the last day of Fall Recruitment and concludes with first day of Pre-Finals Week in the Spring. Not every chapter participates in Continuous Open Bidding.
