Recruitment for Transfer Students

Welcome to Chico State! We are so excited you are interested in Greek life. Getting involved is the 'Wildcat Way', and joining a fraternity or sorority is a perfect way to make new friends and jump right in to the Chico State family. Transfer students who have earned a cumulative 2.5 GPA or higher at their previous institution are eligible to join a fraternity or sorority.

Ways to Join a Sorority

Formal Recruitment

Panhellenic sororities hold formal recruitment the week prior to the start of the Spring semester. Formal Recruitment is a five-day process in which you explore all chapters, with the exception of our associate chapter, Sigma Alpha.

Informal Recruitment

During the Fall semester, sororities can choose to open to allow for new members to join. This process is not organized by the university, and is more casual than Formal Recruitment. If you would like to learn more about informal recruitment, please email Victorina Jeffers at vjeffers@csuchico.edu.

Associate Chapter Recruitment

Sigma Alpha is a professional agricultural sorority that is a member of the Panhellenic Council, but hosts their own recruitment process in both fall and spring semesters. If you are interested in joining Sigma Alpha, please email sigmaalphapresident.chicostate@gmail.com.

Ways to Join a Fraternity

Fraternities belonging to the Interfraternity Council recruit both fall and spring semesters. You are eligible to join a fraternity after completing at least one semester of college courses at a previous institution in which you earned 12 or more units and achieved a 2.5 GPA or higher.

Ways to Join a Multicultural Fraternity or Sorority

Organizations belonging to the Multicultural Greek Council recruit both fall and spring semesters. You are eligible to join a multicultural fraternity or sorority after completing at least one semester of college courses at a previous institution in which you earned 12 or more units and achieved a 2.5 GPA or higher.
