How to Join

Academic Eligibility:

To be eligible or considered for membership in fraternities, sororities and social fellowship organizations, the university requires that a student meet the following criteria:

  • Completion of at least one semester grading period at N.C. A&T, having successfully completed at least 12 semester hours with a minimum cumulative average of 2.75 or higher; and must have completed 80% of their attempted hours at the time of submission of one’s application
  • Enrollment as a full-time (12 semester hours) student at N.C. A&T during both the current and entire period of the previous semester. The student must have passed 12 semester hours in the previous semester. A student properly registered for a cooperative education experience during the previous semester qualifies for full-time status. A letter of verification of Cooperative Education completion must be submitted to the Office of Greek Life prior to application for membership.

Elements of the first bullet point (above) may be affected by national organizations, of which N.C. A&T chapters are components; therefore, it is the responsibility of the chapter to secure clearance from its regional or national organization, i.e. some organizations require a higher cumulative average, giving the option to a chapter to use A&T's minimum requirement.

The only exception to the full-time semester hour requirement shall be for prospective members of student military organizations whose cadets may be part-time A&T students. However, their cumulative average at their home University must be at least a 2.75.

Compliance with A&T minimum requirements for application eligibility does not guarantee that a student will be selected or voted on for membership in an organization. Beyond minimum requirements, organizations have the right to select their members by criteria approved by the national governing body of the organization and accepted by the university as a fair policy. This criteria must be documented in the Office of Greek Life.

Membership Intake Regulations:

Recruitment activities can only be scheduled during the spring semester which is designated by the A&T and those organizations that are approved members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council or Greek Life Council, as stipulated in the Student Handbook. No student may be in a group or organized interest club, pay fees or perform duties or assignments before the membership intake program and schedule are approved by A&T.

Membership Intake Restrictions:

All organizations that are eligible to do so may have only ONE intake period during the academic year and per the issued schedule from the Office of Greek Life. The schedule is for a maximum period to be determine by the Office of Greek Life to process new members and ends at the point of induction.
