How to Register for Sorority Recruitment

How to Register for Fall Formal Membership Recruitment


1. Fill out and submit the registration form. Registration is open June 1 to August 1. Click here for 2015 Sorority Recruitment Registration. 

You may register for fall formal membership recruitment by submitting the registration form online.  The registration form will serve as your resume and this information will be distributed to all of the chapters, therefore it is important to fully complete the form. It will be helpful to have this information ready before opening the registration form. It is also recommended that you provide a current photo which can be uploaded to the application. You cannot save the form and return to it later. Once your registration is submitted, no changes can be made.

Academic Requirements for Sorority Recruitment - Panhellenic highly recommends that a woman wishing to go through recruitment has a 3.0 GPA in High School or 2.8 GPA in College. Academics are extremely important to our Greek community, as shown by the All Sorority GPA average of 3.34.Each sorority chapter has academic standards for membership and only in very rare instances are exceptions made by chapters to the minimum standards. We share this information to show all women interested in participating in recruitment the importance of ​meeting the suggested GPAs stated above in order to maximize your potential success. Questions regarding this policy should be directed to Greek Affairs. Greek Affairs recommends that you wait to register until you have graduated from high school and have your final GPA. Registration is open until August 1 and preference is not given to those who register early.


2. Pay the registration fee.

The formal membership recruitment registration fee for 2015 is $80 and must be paid online using a credit card, debit card, or electronic check. After you submit the registration form, you will be asked to pay the registration fee to complete the registration process. Your registration will not be advanced to chapters for review until full payment is made.


3. Submit your final high school and/or college transcripts.

In order to verify your application for recruitment, Greek Affairs requires a copy of your high school transcript, including your final last semester. Please DO NOT send a copy of your transcript to Greek Affairs. We will obtain a copy via K-State's student information system. You will need to ensure that your high school sends your final transcript to K-State's Office of Admissions. If you have college credit, we will require a copy of any applicable college transcripts and acquire the information in the same manner.


4. View the confirmation email with information about recruitment week.

Once you have completed the first three steps in the recruitment registration process, the recruitment staff will begin processing your registration. After your registration has been processed, you will receive an e-mail stating that you have successfully registered for fall formal membership recruitment.


How to Register for Continuous Open Bidding (COB)

After formal membership recruitment, some chapters may still have openings. Likewise, some chapters may have openings during the spring semester due to members who have graduated or left campus. Please note, open spaces are rare and few. Chapters with openings may choose to continue to recruit through an informal process known as continuous open recruitment.

To register for recruitment, please fill out the COB Registration Form. This information will be distributed to chapters that are able to participate in COB.

Note: Women who have gone through fall formal recruitment and who were offered a bid (membership invitation) are ineligible to participate in COB. They may not take part in any Panhellenic Council recruitment processes until one year after they were initially offered a bid. They may, however, take part in the intake process used by K-State's multicultural fraternities and sororities.
