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.

Going Greek at the University of Illinois Springfield is an important decision for your student and one that you need to be comfortable with as well. Your student will be part of a self-governing community that provides a multitude of opportunities for both personal and professional development, all of which will help lead your student to a bright and successful future.

Tips for supporting your student during the recruitment/intake process:

  • Allow your student to make his/her own decision. Learn as much as you can about Greek life and the membership experience
  • Keep an open mind
  • Understand the University and State Laws about hazing
  • Talk to your student about the financial obligations and membership requirements
  • Just because you’re a Greek alumnus, doesn’t mean your student is interested in the opportunity
  • Keep the Greek Affairs Board contact information available.
