It is becoming increasingly more common for students to transfer colleges/universities and with that comes the question of continuing your sorority membership at your new campus.
Sorority members are granted lifelong membership to their organization which provides lifelong benefits. The Panhellenic Compact, which is a Unanimous Agreement between the 26 member organizations that make up the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), prohibits dual membership. Basically, women are not allowed to join two sororities in their life.
If you transfer schools, you have two options:
1. If your new college/university has a chapter of your sorority you may transfer into that chapter, following the guidelines for transferring membership set by your organization. You can learn more by contacting the chapter you are interested in transferring to.
2. If your new college/university doesn’t have a chapter, you would move from collegiate to alumna membership.
When you transfer schools, your time as a sorority member doesn’t come to an end.
When you transfer schools, your time as a sorority member does not have to come to an end. Sorority alumnae are presented with additional opportunities for growth and involvement. You are able to volunteer for your national organization, network with collegians and other alumnae and more. Alumnae membership can be very rewarding and you can make connections with women around the world due to volunteering and social activities.

If you transfer to another college/university, you can still show your pride as a sorority woman by wearing letters and being active on campus. Your memories from your previous chapter and the relationships you built will remain with you for a lifetime. Take advantage of your lifelong membership and continue to enjoy the sorority experience.
