Prospective Member Orientation

Prospective Member Orientation

The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life’s Prospective Member Orientation (PMO) is a mandatory orientation for any student interested in joining a sorority or fraternity at IU. PMO is an interactive online program that allows students to learn about the rich 175 year history of Sorority and Fraternity Life at IU, membership expectations within a sorority/fraternity, and values exploration to assist students before making the lifelong decision to join a Sorority or Fraternity.

In order to be eligible to join any sorority or fraternity at IU, you must complete the Prospective Member Orientation prior to being added to a chapter’s official roster. No exceptions will be made.

The Prospective Member Orientation for the 2021-2022 academic year is now available to complete. If you are a prospective member, please enroll in the course below.

This initiative came from the direction of the 2018-2019 Greek Task Force new measures. This education exists to ensure all students joining the sorority and fraternity community are fully informed.

This orientation must be completed by all students before receiving a bid/invitation to membership and/or starting the membership intake process for any sorority or fraternity, regardless of council or chapter.

The orientation has three modules. A student will not be eligible for joining a sorority or fraternity at IU until all modules are completed.

This orientation is not considered academic credit and does not affect a student’s academic course load and/or financial aid packages.

Students who are interested in joining a sorority or fraternity can access the PMO on canvas. The link to access will become available by August 1, so check back on our website at that time.

Chapters wishing to invite a member to join will confirm with OSFL staff that interested students have successfully completed all PMO modules. Students who have not successfully completed the PMO are not eligible to join a sorority or fraternity at IU.

Questions about PMO can be directed to the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life and a staff member will reply promptly.
