Start a Collegiate Chapter

“One of our eight core values, GROWTH, promotes the continual development of our members, our chapters and our national organization.”

If your college Panhellenic is in a position to add another organization

If you are from a campus that does not have national sororities

If you are part of a local sorority who wants to affiliate with a national sorority

Alpha Sigma Alpha policy on extension

Alpha Sigma Alpha welcomes questions regarding establishing new chapters. We believe in expanding our national organization and growing our membership. Alpha Sigma Alpha collaborates with universities and colleges to add new chapters of Alpha Sigma Alpha on their campus. Extension is pivotal to the growth and development of the national organization. When Alpha Sigma Alpha considers a campus for extension, different criteria is used to determine if a campus is a good match for the organization.
