Become an Alpha
Becoming a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity requires an investment of your personal time, talents, and money. We are not looking for candidates who are not interested in serving the communities in which they live. We are not seeking candidates who do not take academic excellence seriously. Most importantly, We are not interested in individuals whose actions will put the organization’s brand and well-being at risk. This ship does not need anchors.
An Alpha Phi Alpha member’s greatest interest is outside himself. We value those who believe that their membership in Alpha Phi Alpha is the presentation of their personal commitment to time-valued words such as KNOWLEDGE, ACHIEVEMENT, SERVICE, INTEGRITY, QUALITY, HONOR, EXCELLENCE, and COMMUNITY.

It takes the commitment of everyone involved in the process of joining a group organization to make it happen. We encourage you to join us to make this world a better place through hazing prevention. If you need more information about hazing prevention and Alpha’s policy against hazing as a requirement for membership in our organization, please contact the hotline number below. As a candidate, you understand that you have a duty and responsibility to report any and all instances of hazing experienced by another party, either implied or perceived, during my process to the National Hazing Hotline at 888-NOT-HAZE (888-668- 4293).
