It is highly recommended that you thoroughly read all instructions 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 identifying 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.
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:
We will not be collecting legacy information through our registration process. If you are a legacy for one of the organizations on our campus, we encourage you to visit the organization's inter/national website to find the ways your legacy status can be shared with the chapter.
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. Special circumstances include university-sponsored activities which may conflict with the sorority recruitment schedule. These activities include, but are not limited to: Classes, Varsity Athletics, Marching Band, William H. Thompson Scholars, Big Red Singers, etc. Work, family events, or other obligations do not qualify.
For women who have special circumstances (as defined above), we will do our best to create 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 receiving a bid to membership in one of our sororities.
Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you fall into this catagory, have questions, or are unsure if you have a special circumstance.
