How to Join

Recruitment Information

REGISTER HERE!

As of Fall 2015, Temple University has implemented deferred recruitment. First-semester students will not be eligible to join an organization until they obtain 12 credits. This is to allow students time to adjust to a new academic setting. Since this shift, our community GPA has increased significantly, and our community size continues to grow. Transfer students who obtained 12+ credits elsewhere are welcome to join in their first semester at Temple. If you have specific questions about your eligibility, please contact Program Coordinator, Mat Greer.

The decision to join a fraternity or sorority should only be made after careful thought and research. Fraternity or sorority membership lasts a lifetime. While there are countless benefits to membership, the time and financial commitment should also be considered. These commitments vary among chapters, so be sure to ask before deciding to join.

Learn more about each organization through the Recruitment or Intake processes listed below.
