How to Join

When considering an organization, it is important to meet as many of the members as possible. Be sure to ask about the founding values of the organization, what type of events the organization participates in, and what the organization is looking for in its members. Remember though, while you are looking for an organization that will fulfill your needs, the organization is also looking for members who will fit in with their values.

To be eligible to join a fraternity or sorority at UTA, you must  be a first-semester admitted student to UTA (freshmen or transfer) OR a current UTA student with a cumulative GPA of 2.5.  Individual chapters may have higher acadmic requirements, it is important to ask. 

COLLEGE PANHELLENIC (CPH)

College Panhellenic has a formal Recruitment process in the fall of each academic year. There is a registration process and a week dedicated to learning about the current College Panhellenic chapters and meeting the women in the sororities. At the end of the week, potential new members are matched with current chapters and that is how you join during the formal recruitment process. The last day of the week is Bid Day. Bid Day is the day the potential new members accept their bids and join their chapters. There is also a process called Continuous Open Bidding in which a sorority will issue a bid to join the chapter outside of the formal recruitment process.

Formal Recruitment will be August 31- September 5, 2016, for more information and to sign up visit the CPH page. 

INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL (IFC)

IFC has a formal Recruitment period in the fall and/or spring of each academic year. There is a week dedicated to learning about the current IFC chapters and meeting the men in the fraternities. Each chapter will host a series of activities throughout the week that interested students can attend. At the end of the week, chapters give bids (invitations to join) to potential new members. The last day of the week is Bid Day. Bid Day is the day the potential new members accept their bids and join their chapters. There is also a process called Continuous Open Bidding in which a fraternity will issue a bid to join the chapter outside of the formal recruitment process.
