Registration for Primary Recruitment 2020 opens on June 1, 2020 at 9 AM CST and closes at 11:59 PM CST on August 14, 2020.
May 14, 2020 Update:
Primary Recruitment will now take place within the first few weeks of the fall semester. We are working on a plan and will have more information to share in the next month about the schedule. Women participating will no longer need to register for early move-in for the residence halls. The participation cost will be lower due to these changes and that will be reflected in the June 1 application.
We are sure you have lots of questions. Starting June 1, we will be hosting live question and answer sessions twice a week to provide more information about the recruitment process. To register, please click here: https://www.unl.edu/greek/panhellenic-primary-recruitment
It is highly recommended that you thoroughly read all instructions, listed below, before completing your online registration. This is to ensure your application is submitted correctly and without error. Failure to do so can result in you having to start from the beginning and complete a new form.
I. Verify that you are eligible and prepared to register for the Primary Recruitment process.
In order to participate in sorority recruitment events at UNL, you must be a fully matriculated female student or plan to be a full-time student in good standing with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln at the time of primary recruitment. Those who have previously attended a college must have a 2.5 cumulative GPA in order to be considered in good standing.
There are 16 sororities that participate in primary recruitment. These chapters are Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Phi, Alpha Xi Delta, Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Phi Mu, Pi Alpha Chi, Pi Beta Phi, and Sigma Alpha. More information about each of these chapters can be found here: https://www.unl.edu/greek/pha-sororities
Pi Alpha Chi and Sigma Alpha will not fully participate in primary recruitment. These chapters will participate in the first round and then hold open recruitment events immediately following primary recruitment.
In order to participate in primary recruitment, you must pay the registration fee at the time you complete your application. If you do not pay the registration fee at the time you submit your application, your application may not be saved, requiring you to resubmit all information.
The registration fee is non-refundable and will be processed through GreekBill. Please don't mark this charge as fraudulent. If you do so, it will result in an additional $25 charge that will need to be paid to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life to remain eligible for sorority recruitment.
II. Gathering all materials needed for registration
Once you submit your application, you will NOT be able to make any updates/edits. Please have the following information on hand before you begin working on your application:
The Panhellenic Association is committed to helping women find their home away from home. Our goal is to provide a positive recruitment experience for all applicants. Women who are considered 'special circumstance', are women who are involved in a university-sponsored activity which may conflict with the sorority recruitment schedule. These activities include, but are not limited to: Varsity Athletics, Marching Band, William H. Thompson Scholars, Big Red Singers, etc. Work, family events, or other obligations do not qualify.
Women who have special circumstances (as defined above) will be given an adjusted schedule to ensure that they can participate in recruitment to the best of their ability. The adjusted schedule will not affect the likelihood of getting into a chapter. They will also be assigned a special circumstance recruitment guide who will assist them through the recruitment process.
Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions or are unsure if you are considered a special circumstance. The Vice President of Recruitment Management will follow up with all women who indicate on their application that they have special circumstances. If you do not indicate that you have special circumstances, it may be more difficult to accommodate your schedule.

Please fill out all of the available fields. Failure to do so will reduce your chances of receiving careful consideration by each chapter. Required fields that are not completed will prevent your application from being successfully submitted.

Each chapter takes legacy information into consideration, but it will not guarantee you membership. If you believe that you are a legacy to a chapter, please review the chapter's legacy policy located on their local or national website.
Before moving to step three, you will be asked to read the disclosure policy. You will need to accept these terms in order to complete your registration.
