Chapter Statuses

Below you will find the recognition status of all of our recognized fraternities and sororities at the University of Maryland. In keeping with the Vice President’s expectation that sororities and fraternities be responsibly managed and participate as constructive members of the community, as a general rule, recognition will not be granted unless the sorority or fraternity chapter:

  • Is a registered student organization with the University’s Office of Campus Programs;
  • Has a minimum of five (5) currently enrolled University of Maryland, College Park, undergraduate student members;
  • Is in good standing with its International or National Headquarters. Newly chartered chapters without an inter/national infrastructure may be exempted from this requirement at the discretion of the Department of Fraternity and Sorority Life (DFSL) on a case-by-case basis;
  • Is accepted by one of the four governing councils: the Interfraternity Council, the Pan-Hellenic Council, the Panhellenic Association, or the Multicultural Greek Council, unless exempted from this requirement at the discretion of the DFSL on a case-by-case basis;
  • Has reasonably complied with the University of Maryland Chapter Expectations established by the Vice President and the DFSL. New sororities and fraternities must demonstrate a capacity to meet these requirements.
  • Those chapters listed under the recognized with distinction category have gone above and beyond the expectations of the Department of Fraternity & Sorority Life related to programming, attendance, and service initiatives.

WARNING: Some organizations that were once recognized fraternities or sororities on campus continue to operate underground despite having lost recognition from the University.

These organizations have had their recognition revoked by the institution for various reasons, including such things as hazing, alcohol and drug abuse, risk management violations, and failure to comply with University policies and expectations. These organizations have in almost all cases also had their charter suspended by their international organization because they were not upholding fraternal values and were engaging in risky behaviors that endangered the members and other students. The following groups have lost recognition and have not been approved to return to campus:

  • Delta Chi Fraternity (suspended through 2019; charter suspended by National)
  • Lambda Phi Epsilon (suspended through 2019; charter suspended by National)
  • Tau Kappa Epsilon (suspended to Fall 2020; charter suspended by National)
  • Omega Psi Phi Fraternity (suspended through 2020; charter suspended by National)
  • Kappa Sigma Fraternity (suspended through 2022; charter suspended by National)
  • Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity (suspended indefinitely by National)
  • Delta Tau Delta (suspended by National – no date specified)
  • Phi Gamma Delta "Fiji" (suspended through 2023; charter suspended by National)
  • Pi Kappa Phi (suspended through 2023; charter suspended by National)
  • Alpha Epsilon Pi (suspended through 2024)
  • Pi Kappa Alpha (suspended through 2026)
