Joining a fraternity or sorority is a mutual selection process between students and fraternity/sorority organizations. What this means is that as you are exploring which organization is the best fit for you, organizations are examining what students are a good fit for their fraternity/sorority. We challenge you to keep an open mind and consider more than one option to ensure that you are finding the best fit.

Invitation to Join

Students who choose to participate in recruitment activities are under no obligations to join any organization. At the end of the recruitment period, the fraternity or sorority will extend an invitation to join (bid) written or verbally to students. If a student accepts the invitation to join, they are then considered a new member of the fraternity/sorority.

Requirements to Join


You must be an enrolled UTA student at the time of joining. Some fraternities or sororities may require that you are enrolled in a certain number of hours, have earned a number of hours, or that you hold a minimum grade point average. As you are exploring organizations, ask about academic requirements.
