Additional Information To Consider

Cost: Joining a fraternity or sorority is a financial commitment. There is a cost to register for recruitment as well as costs to the chapter immediately upon joining. You can expect to pay dues in the amount of $800- $1200 per year for the duration of your college career.

Academics: Fraternities and sororities have high academic standards. Potential new members are advised that each chapter has a GPA requirement for their new members.

Commitment: Joining a fraternity or sorority is a large time commitment. You should be sure that you are able to commit to each aspect of the organization, including education, philanthropy, chapter events and social events. Fraternities and sororities aren’t like clubs, in that you can’t quit because you want to. You should read everything carefully that you are asked to sign!

Rules: Potential new members should review the Panhellenic Recruitment Rules that are applicable to them.

Letters of Recommendation:  Letters of recommendation (aka “rec letters”) are not required, but are welcomed.  Each sorority has their own standards for recommendations.  If you have sorority alumnae that want to write you a recommendation , please have them consult their sororities national website for procedures on writing letters of recommendation.

Psi Sigma Phi Multicultural Fraternity was founded on December 12, 1990 at Montclair State University. The Founding Fathers believed that multiculturalism is not indicative of the physical composition of an organization on a chapter or national level; it is viewed as a state of mind––a philosophy that embraces any and all aspects of cultural identity with unconditional respect and equality. Psi Sigma Phi started recruiting to build their Founding Line in Fall 2020. If you would like to learn more about the organization, you can go visit their website here.

Recognition of fraternities and sororities is solely at the discretion of High Point University. Recognized Chapters can lose their recognition status by: receiving a sanction of suspension or dismissal through the student conduct process; violating local, state, and/ or national laws; revocation of their chapter charter from their inter/national headquarters. Fraternities/Sororities that lose recognition are expected to cease all activities and abide by all terms and conditions formally communicated to the organization by High Point University. No member of the High Point University community, nor any national or international fraternity or sorority, may solicit or recruit High Point University students to establish new or reestablish former fraternity/sorority organizations without the consent of the University. Members of the University community determined to be recruiting students for new/formerly recognized groups and/or continuing operations of such groups, are subject to sanctioning by the University up to and including suspension/expulsion.

An unrecognized fraternity or sorority is one that has lost their recognition from the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. It can also be an organization that never received recognition to begin with. Unrecognized organizations are also known as “underground organizations” and they are not permitted to operate under any circumstances. Chapters that operate without recognition will be adjudicated under the Student Organization Code of Conduct. If a chapter has been closed either by their inter/national headquarters or by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, the following requirements must be followed:

  • May not continue to operate under the name of the fraternity, sorority, or chapter nomenclature.  
  • May not hold, sponsor, or attend events as an organization.  
  • Will not be counted in the general makeup of the fraternity/sorority population at High Point University.  
  • May not form housing groups using organizational or chapter nomenclature. 
  • Underground pledging, new member education, or intake is strictly forbidden.   
  • If the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and the inter/national headquarters have a written agreement outlining a date of return for the organization to re-establish at High Point University, any violation (but not limited to) the requirements above will result in the return date being re-evaluated.  

If there is indication that an unrecognized/underground organization is operating, the organization will be adjudicated through the Student Conduct process. Individuals who are participating in an unrecognized/underground organization will be suspended from the University. Currently there are no unrecognized organizations at High Point University.
