About National Pan-Hellenic Council

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) at UTA was formed in the mid 1990's as more and more of the "Divine Nine" organizations solidified their presence on campus. Currently, UTA is home to 6 of the 9 NPHC organizations. Today, the primary purpose and focus of member organizations remains community awareness and action through educational, economic, and cultural service activities. The individual member is also expected to align with a graduate/alumni chapter, following graduation from college to perpetuate the purpose of the council.

How to Join

The National Pan-Hellenic Council hosts an event called NPHC Greek 101 at the beginning of each semester for interested students. This event encourages students to meet current members and learn more about NPHC and its member organizations at UTA. In addition, throughout the year individual chapters hold Informational Sessions (sometimes called Interest Meetings or Rush). Informational sessions give potential new members and NPHC organizations the chance to discuss the benefits of membership in greater detail.

After a person applies to an organization and has been accepted, the new member education (sometimes called intake) period begins. Typically, this period involves classroom sessions with a chapter advisor that educates potential new members about the history, policies, and programs of the organization. The overall intake process is different for each fraternity and sorority, so interested students should consult a representative from the organization they wish to join for specific membership information.

Requirements to Join

Each NPHC organization will have different membership requirements, and at minimum, this could include a number completed hours at UTA, a minimum cumulative GPA, letters of recommendation and a financial commitment at the time of membership.
