The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is the governing body for the historically African-American fraternities and sororities at the College of Charleston. Fraternities include: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., and Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. Sororities include: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
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.
Also, be aware that organizations will hold informational meetings throughout the school year. These meetings will be advertised on campus billboards and in the student center. 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 events held during Welcome Week in the fall. 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 the above mentioned 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.
