NPHC Membership Intake

Thank you for your interest in the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) fraternities and sororities at the University of Illinois Springfield! The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is a collaborative organization of nine historically African American, international Greek lettered fraternities and sororities. The council promotes interaction through forums, meetings and other mediums for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions.

Each National Pan-Hellenic Council fraternity and sorority brings in new members at various times of the year through a process called Membership Intake. All organizations governed by the National Pan- Hellenic Council have different requirements for membership.  When organizations are looking to conduct Membership Intake, many of them will host an informational meeting in which the criteria for membership are explained.  NPHC will host a general informational about all of its organizations for students who have questions or are unsure about the intake process.

Typically, a student must obtain a collegiate GPA of 2.5 or higher, community service experience, and involvement in clubs or community activities. Each NPHC organization has its own requirements set by their inter/national organization and UIS chapter.
