College Panhellenic Council (CPH)

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.


Panhellenic Preview Day (originally scheduled for April 4) is canceled due to operating changes because of COVID-19. There is a possibility that we will have the event in the summer; however, CPH is waiting until a later date to make that decision. 

If you would like to stay informed on CPH 2020 recruitment information, you can complete this CPH interest form by CLICKING HERE. Those who fill out the CPH interest form will be sent an email if we choose to reschedule preview day and will receive an email regarding recruitment registration. 

Formal Recruitment will take place August 13, 2020 through August 17, 2020. The Potential New Member (PNM) schedule of recruitment can will be released by July 1, 2020. Any woman wishing to participate in formal panhellenic sorority recruitment, must register by July 31, 2020.

To participate in formal recruitment, you must register online at, 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: $75
June 1-June 30: $90
July 1-July 31: $105

Registration, online orientation, and registration fee must be completed/received by July 31, 2020 or you will be unable to participate in the 2020 Fall Formal Recruitment. Registration fees must be paid online.

Recommendation letters are not required at UNA. If you choose to seek recommendation letters, please know each organization has their own process (many are online). Alumnae of each chapter should know their process for recommendation letters. If mailing paper recommendation letters (though they're discouraged as most of our organizations prefer online submissions), these should be mailed directly to sororities. Again, recommendation letters are NOT required at UNA. The sorority mailing addresses can be found here: CPH Sorority Mailing Addresses.

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)
