NPHC organizations limit their membership to students at USC Upstate. NPHC organizations host Information and Interest Meetings where they discuss their chapter’s history, philanthropy and requirements to become a member. Students who apply and are accepted for membership would then participate in Membership Intake, the
process of educating and initiating new members into an individual chapter.
Each organization selects if and when they will host an Interest Meeting or Intake. These meetings could happen in the Fall semester, Spring semester or both, based on the needs of the chapter. Most organizations require sophomore status for membership, but some are open
to second semester freshmen.
