The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) organizations at The University of Southern Mississippi select members through a process called intake. Intake is the process of selecting, educating and initiating new members into an NPHC chapter. This process is prescribed by the national organization.

NPHC groups will individually announce their membership selection/intake process during the semester and they will explain their membership process at the initial informational meeting. Interested students are encouraged to check out the national websites for the various NPHC organizations and to attend events sponsored by the local chapters. By doing this, you will have a better perspective of the organization and its members so that you can make the best decision for you.

  • Students interested in membership of the NPHC chapters at Southern Miss must have completed at least 12 credit hours.

  • Students must be enrolled at Southern Miss with a 2.5 or higher cumulative grade point average.

  • It is the decision of individual organizations if transfer students are eligible for membership into their organization.

  • Students enrolled at other colleges or universities are not eligible for membership in Southern Miss organizations.

  • All potential members/candidates for membership must have their grades and hours verified prior to the chapter extending any form of invitation to membership.

  • Attendance at the NPHC Sorority/Fraternity Informational is required for intake into any active NPHC organization.

  • Letters of recommendation from alumni/alumnae are usually required.

  • Intake happens at the discretion of the organization.  Groups can conduct intake each semester, skip semesters, or conduct one every other year.
