The object of the College Panhellenic Council is to develop and maintain women’s sorority life and interfraternity relations at a high level of accomplishment and in so doing to:
  1. Consider the goals and ideals of member organizations as applicable to campus and personal life
  2. Promote superior scholarship and intellectual development.
  3. Cooperate with member women’s sororities and the university/college administration to maintain high social and moral standards.
  4. Act in accordance with National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) Unanimous Agreements, policies and best practices.
  5. Act in accordance with such rules established by the Panhellenic Council as to not violate the sovereignty, rights and privileges of member sororities.

You can find information on chapter membership costs here: Financial Transparency

To participate in formal recruitment, you must register online at una.mycampusdirector2.com, pay your registration fee, and complete the online PNM orientation. The online registration will open in April 20, 2020 (the online orientation link will be emailed to PNMs during the summer). The registration fee will gradually increase throughout the summer.

The registration fee for recruitment is as follows:

April 20-May 31: $50
June 1-June 30: $55
July 1-July 31: $60

(We updated our registration fees on 5/22/20 after announcing the transition to a hybrid-recruitment model. Those who registered prior to this date will receive a $25 refund for the registration difference since we lowered the registration cost.)

Registration and online orientation must be completed by 11:59pm (central time) on July 31, 2020 or you will be unable to participate in the 2020 Fall Formal Recruitment. Registration fees must be paid online at the time you register.

Unfortunately, CPH had to cancel our Panhellenic Preview Day (originally scheduled for April 4) due to operating changes because of COVID-19

To provide potential new members an opportunity to learn about the College Panhellenic Council, we hosted a virtual informational on May 22, 2020 at 3:00pm. During the informational council and chapter leadership reviewed the process for registering for recruitment, shared details on what to expect during recruitment, and shared information on each of our chapters. 

You can view the informational recording here:

Recommendation letters are not required at UNA. If you choose to seek recommendation letters, please know each chapter has their own process for recommendations, however, since recommendations come from alumnae members of the organization, the alumnae writing the recommendation should be aware of the sorority process. 

 Again, recommendation letters are NOT required at UNA.

The sorority mailing addresses can be found here: CPH Sorority Mailing Addresses. Written/mailed letters of recommendation are discouraged. Alumnae should use the online submission process detailed above. 

As required by the National Panhellenic Conference, there is no GPA requirement to participate in formal recruitment at the University of North Alabama. However, the four sororities have individual requirements to extend a membership invitation. The typical sorority average to extend a membership invitation is a 3.00 GPA. Women who have below a 3.00 GPA are advised that they are at a greater risk to be released from the formal recruitment process due to their academics. With the amount of women who participate in the formal recruitment process, GPA tends to be a characteristic all groups strongly consider, especially after the first round of formal recruitment. Being released from formal recruitment or receiving a membership invitation through the formal recruitment process is due to a wide variety of factors that are ultimately up to the sororities. GPA is only one of those factors, but there is much weight placed on GPA.

To help students understand how their GPA may affect their formal recruitment experience, College Panhellenic created Grade Zones to show how academics may factor in formal recruitment.

GPA Zones:
Green Zone = Your options are not likely limited based on your GPA. (3.0 + )
Yellow Zone = Your options are more likely to be limited by your GPA. (2.8 – 2.99)
Red Zone = Your options are very likely to be limited based on GPA. (2.79 and below)
