How to Join
Panhellenic Formal Recruitment occurs the week before classes begin each fall semester. After registering online in the summer and working on your recommendation letters, you will have the opportunity to attend several events during formal recruitment at each chapter house. Throughout the week, by a process of mutual selection, both chapters and potential new members will narrow their choices. At UT Austin, a majority of women obtain membership through this process; however qualifying chapters may also have opportunities to join outside of this time period and throughout the year.
For more information regarding Registration, please click on the
"Register" tab under "Recruitment". Registration opens on Monday May 18, 2017.

A Note to PACE Students

Students participating in the Pathway to Admission through Co-Enrollment, also known as PACE, will have access to all of the benefits and privileges of a full time student at UT Austin. Participating in extracurricular activities, such as joining a sorority and fraternity, is encouraged and will enhance your experience in college.

We would encourage you to consult with the national organizations should you have questions about eligibility requirements.
