Membership Intake Policy
NO Pledging Allowed. Pledging is against the purposes and goals of the Fraternity and has been discontinued as a condition or manner of initiation into the membership of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. It is no longer legal within Alpha Phi Alpha for members to establish a “pledge line” or to require aspirants to the organization to submit to “hazing”. All membership intake activities for the Fraternity are conducted by the National Intake Office and occur in the presence of a National Intake Officer.
Any grievances and disputes regarding membership intake should be referred to the National Intake Director for investigation and resolution. Aspirants to the organization agree to follow all rules, regulations and guidelines relating to the intake process. The aspirant further agrees to report in writing any infractions and violations of the rules, regulations and guidelines relating to the intake process. Failure by the aspirant to abide by the intake process or to report illegal activities may exclude the aspirant from membership in the Fraternity. The information should be sent to the National Intake Director at the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Headquarters; 2313 St. Paul Street; Baltimore, MD 21218.
