National Pan-Hellenic Council

Welcome to the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) webpage. Here you will find information relating to our NPHC fraternities and sororities. The National Pan-Hellenic Council is the governing body for (9) historically African American fraternities and sororities. The chapters that we currently have on campus include the following:

  • Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

  • Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.,

  • Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

  • Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.

The National Pan-Hellenic Council engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions.


How to Join an NPHC fraternity or sorority:
Each NPHC 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. These organizations are permitted to conduct intake based on the chapters schedule and/ or their need for expansion. Some organizations conduct intake each semester; others do so only once a year. When organizations are looking to conduct Membership Intake, many of them will host an informational meeting in which the criteria for membership is explained. These are usually publicized via flyers on campus. NPHC will host a general information session about all of its organizations for students who have questions or are unsure about the intake process. This event is called “Meet the Greeks” and is held in the fall semester.

All potential new members are required to register for recruitment. Register for NPHC Recruitment 

Requirements to Join an NPHC organization:
Typically, a student must obtain a collegiate GPA of 2.5 or higher, community service experience, and involvement in clubs or community activities. Nevertheless, each NPHC organization has its own requirements set by their (inter)national organization and the Loyno chapter. Please contact the Loyno chapter that you are interested in for more information.

NPHC ensures collective programming and cooperation among the member organizations so that each organization can uphold its mission and provide service to the community. For more information about NPHC, please contact Chirs McQueen,
