National Pan-Hellenic Council and Multicultural Greek Council

Membership intake is the process that National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) and Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) utilize to recruit, interview, select, and initiate new members. The period of membership intake varies from chapter to chapter, but generally does not exceed 10 weeks. While each organization sets its own schedule and requirements for membership intake, candidates must typically have a 2.5 or better GPA, hold at least 12 credit hours, and have an extensive appreciation and history of volunteerism.


For more information for potential membership requirements, please visit individual chapter websites or contact NPHC or MGC chapters directly to find out about their specific intake process.
