How to Join

Joining a fraternity or sorority at the Georgia Tech can seem like an afterthought at first. Academics are always the first priority of almost any Tech student and there are a plethora of opportunities to join all types of organizations all throughout your time here at Tech, and we hope you will explore all of your options. This website is for the general Greek-letter organizations that are currently affiliated with the four Greek councils under the Office of Greek Affairs and are recognized by the Institute. We want you to know that almost any recruitment event does not obligate you to membership! So learn about our community more to see if its an option for you!

The processes and timing for a student to join a fraternity or sorority at Georgia Tech can vary among the four councils. The first step for ANY potential member is to consider which council he/she is interested in exploring. So please check out our community page to learn about the different councils! (link to that page) This will help you to decide how to proceed according to what is offered through each council and how it matches your interests!

It is important to note that the organizations, despite focus, interest, or historical founding welcome all students. Some fraternities and sororities are open to first-semester students, and some are not. Some recruit both fall and winter semesters, and some just in the fall. The Collegiate Panhellenic Council sororities have to heavily regulate their organizations recruitment process, and the Interfraternity Council fraternities regulate theirs to a certain extent. The National Pan-Hellenic Council and the Multicultural Greek Council fraternities and sororities have a process that is set by national or regional officers who mandate the timing and regulations around their “recruitment” or “intake” processes, in accordance to Georgia Tech policy. The following links will give you a brief description of the recruitment process for each council and provide links to register if needed!
