When and How can I join an NPHC Organization?
- NPHC organizations do not use a recruitment process similar to the one used by the Interfraternity Council or the Panhellenic Council. NPHC organizations have open recruitment periods that are deemed by the specific organization, not by NPHC. Specific requirements vary by organization. Check out an organization's local or national website for specific intake requirements.
- Our 7 NPHC organizations will hold their membership intake process at different times throughout the year. Students need to have completed at least 12 credit hours at the university level in order to join. NPHC
- Also, be aware that organizations will hold informational meetings throughout the school year. These meetings will enable one to learn more about an organization, and perhaps get specific intake questions answered.
- If you are interested in joining one of these chapters, there will be several NPHC sponsored during NPHC Week this Fall, September 4-8, 2012. In addition, NPHC will hold their NPHC Forum on Thursday, September 20 from 7-9 pm in Student Union Ballroom A.
Individual chapters will advertise informational meetings throughout the year. Most of these chapters hold intake in the spring semester, however, a few conduct the process in the fall. Achieving high scholarship, serving the community and mentoring youth are the primary focuses of our chapters. For many of the chapters, individuals interested in membership are asked to submit a transcript and recommendations that reflect his or her academic achievement and service.
