Becoming a Sigma sister is a great opportunity, a privilege, and also a commitment. That's why during the course of the recruitment process, we take the time to get to know the ladies because we want to find out if they have Sigma Potential or not.


There are five mandatory steps in the Sigma Beta Phi recruitment process; they are the following:


1. Information Session

2. Initial Interview

3. Rush (for Beta Alpha only)

4. Pledge

5. Final Interview

All applicants must successfully complete the recruitment process in its entirety in order to be initiated into the sorority. The recruitment process varies from 4-6 months long. Furthermore, Sigma Beta Phi Sorority has a strict anti-hazing policy. Our recruitment process is free of any activities, tasks, or rituals that are degrading, humiliating and/or potentially dangerous to any interested member's physical, emotional, or mental being.
