Intake Procedures

Fraternity & Sorority Affairs requires all chapters which facilitate an intake process to meet with the Fraternity & Sorority Affairs Advisors and submit a Notice of Intention to Conduct Membership Intake Form (pdf) prior to the start of the process. The meeting should take place before the conclusion of the third week of the semester.

Should your organization require a signature on inter/national paperwork from a Fraternity & Sorority Affairs staff member, you will be required to submit the completed Intake Notification Form prior to receiving any signatures from our staff.

New Member Presentations & Shows

New Member Presentations & Shows are performances hosted by chapters which have recently initiated new members into their organizations and wish to publically introduce them to the campus community. In order to facilitate a smooth and successful presentation, chapters are required to meet with the Fraternity & Sorority Affairs Advisors to review policies and expectations. Below is a brief listing of items pertaining to the scheduling of shows and behavior/representation expectations.

Presentation Show Scheduling

  • New Member Presentations cannot take place after the completion of week fourteen (14) of the academic semester.
  • Chapters must hold presentations for their new members during the same semester in which membership intake was conducted.
