Graduate Membership Process
The Sorority’s official graduate Membership Intake Process (MIP) is by invitation only through a local graduate chapter and may not be solicited. Omega Omega Chapter hosts public events, presentations and social activities, which you may wish to attend in order to become acquainted with Sorority members and their community service activities in the Philadelphia area.
The MIP begins with an Official Letter of Invitation, on chapter stationery, signed by the local graduate chapter president AND membership chair. THERE WILL BE NO MEMBERSHIP ACTIVITIES PRIOR TO RECEIPT OF AN OFFICIAL LETTER OF INVITATION. Participation in MIP activities in the name of the Sorority prior to receipt of this official letter is prohibited. There is neither pledging nor a Rush. Candidates should not participate in demeaning, degrading or unkind acts. Should members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority ask you to perform tasks or participate in activities other than those outlined in our MIP, they are in violation of the Sorority’s policies and practices and do not represent the values of the organization. This behavior will not be tolerated.
Candidacy is also contingent upon approval of the required materials submitted by the prospective candidate. Membership in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. will not be extended to any person who knowingly submits falsified documents or credentials.
