How to Join an MGC fraternity or sorority
Each MGC fraternity and sorority brings in new members at various times of the year through a process called Membership Intake. All organizations governed by the Multicultural Greek Council have different requirements for membership. These organizations are permitted to conduct intake based on the chapters schedule and/ or their need for new members.

Some organizations conduct intake each semester; others do so only once a year. When organizations are looking to conduct Membership Intake, many of them will host an informational meeting in which the criteria for membership is explained. These are usually publicized via flyers on campus.

MGC will host a general information session about all of its organizations for students. This event is called “MGC Showcase” and is held in the fall semester. MGC and NPHC collaboratively host a formal information session detailing the Membership Intake process, requirements, and policies for students who have questions or are unsure about the intake process. This event is called “Intake Orientation.” There are two sessions hosted in the fall, and one is held in the spring.

Requirements to Join an MGC organization
All students who want to join an MGC fraternity or sorority must have a minimum cumulative GPA of a 2.50, community service experience, and involvement in clubs or community activities. Nevertheless, each MGC organization has its own requirements set by their (inter)national organization and the UofSC Chapter. Please contact the UofSC chapter that you are interested in for more information.
