Membership Intake Policies

Membership Intake Process

The purpose of the Membership Intake Process is to assist fraternities and sororities at the University of Houston in the execution of their Membership Intake Programs. This document is meant to educate UH fraternity and sorority members, their advisors, and potential new members about the Membership Intake expectations, policies, and procedures of the University of Houston’s Center for Fraternity & Sorority Life. It is our goal to create a positive experience for all involved through collaboration between the office, chapter members, graduate chapter/alumni Advisors, and (inter) national headquarters/boards.
