What is the difference between primary recruitment and open recruitment?
Recruitment is the period when fraternities and sororities actively seek out new members who have the values that align with those of their respective organization. Recruitment includes a series of events offering members and PNMs the opportunity to get to know one another through values based conversations and mutual selection.

Primary Recruitment
Primary recruitment happens during the last weekend of January and the first weekend in February. This is a fully structured process that allows all PNMs to meet members from every chapter on campus and participate in a mutual selection process. During the primary recruitment process, all chapters are eligible to take new member classes. Use the electronic application to apply for recruitment.


Open recruitment is a less structured process that happens during both the spring and fall semesters outside of the primary recruitment time. Open recruitment typically starts directly following primary recruitment in the spring, and one week after the semester resumes in the fall. Only eligible chapters are able to participate during open recruitment. You can inquire with each chapter individually to determine if they are eligible. To apply and participate, please use the open recruitment application.

Pursue Membership

A bid is a formal invitation to join, given by an individual sorority that wishes to offer you membership.  Remember, you must register by the deadline and participate in the recruitment process to be eligible to receive a bid to join. Bids are given out after the conclusion of the recruitment period.  Each organization uses its own internal constitution and by-laws to determine membership qualifications.  A sorority will inform you if its GPA requirement is higher than the University minimum of 2.25.
