To become a member of either one of these organizations, undergraduate students must meet specific membership qualifications and criteria. Potential new members should be in good standing with the university, have good morals, strong values, and campus and community involvement. Such requirements are designed to promote the building of strong end effective chapters.
Each NPHC group conducts its own membership intake process. Chapters advertise their membership intake process through flyers labeled “interest meeting,” “informational,” or “meet and greet” which all students are welcome to attend and express interest in and learn more about an organization.
