When is recruitment?

UPCNoYesYes, but not all

Most organizations participate in Recruitment or Intake both semesters and in the Summer, often in the first few weeks of the semester, with the exception of UPC. Peruse our affiliated organizations to learn more about all the opportunities here at UT Austin, and connect with a chapter or council which interests you to learn more about their process.

How do I register for the Sorority and Fraternity Leadership Issues Class?
To register for the class, an application must be submitted to SFL, which will enable you to enroll if you're a member of a SFL affiliated fraternity or sorority.

What is hazing?
The law defines hazing as any intentional, knowing, or reckless act, occurring on or off the campus of an educational institution, by one person alone or acting with others, directed against a student, that endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student for the purpose of pledging, being initiated into, affiliating with, holding office in, or maintaining membership in any organization whose members are or include students at an educational institution.

How do I report a hazing incident?
State law and university policy require that you immediately contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 512-471-9700 or 512-471-3065. You may also report a hazing incident online. Fear of losing an opportunity to join or remain in a particular fraternity or sorority should never prevent you from reporting a hazing incident. Your health and safety are far more important! Anyone can file a report.
