Chapter Statuses


Below you will find the recognition status of all of our recognized fraternities and sororities at the University of Maryland. In keeping with the Vice President’s expectation that sororities and fraternities be responsibly managed and participate as constructive members of the community, as a general rule, recognition will not be granted unless the sorority or fraternity chapter:

  • Is a registered student organization with the University’s Office of Campus Programs;
  • Has a minimum of eight (8) currently enrolled University of Maryland, College Park, undergraduate student members;
  • Is in good standing with its International or National Headquarters. Newly chartered chapters without an inter/national infrastructure may be exempted from this requirement at the discretion of the Department of Fraternity and Sorority Life (DFSL) on a case-by-case basis;
  • Is accepted by one of the four governing councils: the Interfraternity Council, the Pan-Hellenic Council, the Panhellenic Association, or the Multicultural Greek Council, unless exempted from this requirement at the discretion of the DFSL on a case-by-case basis;
  • Has reasonably complied with the University of Maryland Chapter Expectations established by the Vice President and the DFSL. New sororities and fraternities must demonstrate a capacity to meet these requirements.
