Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is no longer recognized at the University of North Alabama. The chapter has been placed on University suspension until 2022. 
The University of North Alabama defines a fraternity/sorority as an organization that exists to promote fraternal relationships and personal development; requirement for membership is subjective and is not limited to a specific field of study, class year, etc; and members are not typically permitted to hold membership in other identified fraternities/sororities at the University. Organizations that engage in new member education, ceremonies of initiation, ritual and/or other Fraternity and Sorority Life artifacts (e.g., bigs/littles, wearing letters, etc.) will be considered a fraternity/sorority.
  • Good Standing: Organization is an active, registered organization on campus, with no restrictions (Organizations are in good standing, unless otherwise noted beside the chapter name).
    • Interest Group: Organization is not yet chartered on campus; however, the organization is in the process of establishing a chapter at UNA. Interest groups are active, with no restrictions (unless otherwise noted). Interest groups may not yet be registered with Student Engagement, and may not yet be members of a governing council. 
    • Affiliate: Organization is not yet chartered through their inter/national headquarters; however, the organization is recognized by their inter/national headquarters and is in the process of becoming a chartered organization. Affiliates are active, associated with a governing counil, with no restrictions (unless otherwise noted). Affiliates may not yet be registered with Student Engagement.
  • Poor Standing: Organization is still active on campus, but failed to meet University or Council standards (academics, missing documents, incomplete registration, late fees/fines, etc.)
  • Probation: Organization is still active on campus, but has restrictions (restrictions are dependent on the terms of the probation).
  • Council Suspension:  Organization is still active on campus, but has lost voting rights within their governing councils (there may be additional restrictions with council suspension).
  • Inactive: Organization is not active on campus; however, there are no restrictions should they choose to pursue active status (this is often due to all members graduating and the organization having no undergraduate members).
  • University Suspension: Organization is not active on campus and is not recognized by the campus (this is also sometimes referred to as loss of University recognition).

All active organizations, registered with Student Engagement, are permitted to recruit without any limitations. Organizations that are on University Suspension are not permitted to recruit, nor host/participate in any campus events.
