IGC Recruitment

Membership intake for Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Inc. is conducted once per semester during the fall and/or spring semester for each organization. Individual chapters will determine if they will have membership intake in conjunction with their state, regional, or national organization.  A Greek Information Night will be hosted by these chapters to learn more information. (Details coming soon!)

Sigma Phi Lambda conducts formal recruitment processes in September and January.  More information on the process and to register can be found here.
