2022 Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment Registration Dates
Registration will be open at MIDNIGHT on JUNE 1st 2022 and will close on AUGUST 14, 2022.
No exceptions will be made after the closure of the Primary Recruitment registration period. If a PNM has not registered for Recruitment by 11:59pm on the last day of Recruitment registration (August 14th, 2022), she will be unable to participate in the Primary Recruitment process. Absolutely no extensions will be granted to this registration period.
When you register you will create a personal account. Please write down and save your username and password information for your personal records. You will also need this account information to make your selections after rounds of Recruitment. Registration takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.
As AEPhi is a smaller sorority, they host on independent, informal recruitment that takes place the week after formal recruitment. They wish you the best of luck with formal recruitment, but in the event that you don't find your home and choose to leave before receiving a bid from another sorority, you can register for their recruitment using this link. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
*Remember, AEPhi's recruitment is not the same registration process as Primary Recruitment. If you have any questions either reach out to Isabella Garcia, Vice President of Recruitment at email@example.com or AEPhi at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Is there a grade requirement to go through Recruitment?
Academics are very important for all of our Panhellenic sororities. While there is not academic cutoff for Recruitment, it is highly recommended that women going through Primary Recruitment have a high school GPA of no less than 2.75, and a college GPA of no less than 2.50 (for upperclassmen).
If your GPA is lower than these numbers, you can expect to receive significantly fewer invitations than women with higher GPAs. Some grade exemptions may be granted, but not many. Each sorority has its own academic cut-off established, and will vary for each chapter.
Registration Fee for 2022 Primary Recruitment
June 1 - August 14: $200
PNMO: more information will be shared soon
The Recruitment Registration Fee covers several costs during the span of the Recruitment week. Recruitment registrations will not be processed until the registration fee is received. No registration refunds will be given.
A legacy is a potential new member who is the sister, daughter, or granddaughter of an alumnae sorority member. Being a legacy does NOT guarantee membership into a sorority. Legacy status can be indicated when registering online. Please have the alumnae member send a legacy introduction form and letter of recommendation directly to her sorority, as sororities will need to verify the information you list. Below is what each chapter considers a legacy.

The online Potential New Member Orientation (PNMO) is REQUIRED for all students who plan to register for Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment.
After you register for Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment, you must complete an online Recruitment education program referred to as Potential New Member Orientation (PNMO). PNMO strives to make the process of joining a sorority easier to understand so that all Potential New Members (PNMs) know what to expect from the recruitment process. PNMO is a self-paced educational tool that serves as a continuing resource for PNMs throughout the Recruitment process and provides consistent education to all PNMs.
On Campus Housing
We are working with the Department of Residence Life to ensure virtual events do not interfere with move-in times. Students living on campus will make an appointment to check in and get your key; you may then move your belongings in at any time after that. Check-in appointments are available from August 21 through 29, and there will not be any early check-ins permitted prior to August 21. All recruitment events are online until August 26, so you should be able to schedule your check-in appointment around recruitment events. If you feel your move-in time may cause a conflict, we ask you to fill out the conflict form you will receive in your confirmation email upon registration. If you have already contacted Residence Life about changing your move-in time, be on the lookout for a response from them.
