Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) & National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) intake process

Information for the Multicultural Greek Council organization (MGC) or a National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) intake process.

NPHC & MGC Intake

MGC and NPHC organizations recruit independently and on their own timelines. Depending on the individual needs of the chapter intake can occur in either the fall or spring semesters. Membership in any NPHC/ MGC sorority or fraternity, is by invitation only.
Men and women wishing to join a MGC/NPHC organization must:

  • Be in good standing with the University;

  • Be at least a second semester first-year student and meet all expectations of the inter/national organization for membership

  • Meet the GPA requirement stated by inter/ national headquarters and the chapter. 

  • Chapters encourage interested men and women to have a record of community service and campus involvement.

NPHC Intake

National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) does not sponsor a rush for the Historically Black Greek Lettered Organizations although they do host “Meet The Greeks” each fall so students can learn more about each chapter and ask questions about joining. Each fraternity and sorority reaches out to potential new members independently; students can learn more by attending interest sessions, attending each organization’s functions, and talking with current members.  To seek membership, students should make connections with current chapter members and express interest utilizing the connections they have made.

MGC Intake

Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) does not sponsor a rush for organizations affiliated with the council. Although, several events like “Step, Stroll, and Salute” are hosted in the fall for students to learn more about the organizations. Students are encouraged to attend interest sessions, attend organization events, and talking to members on campus to foster understanding. To seek membership, students should make connections with current chapter members and express interest utilizing the connections they have made.
