The submission process for the Annual Report to the Fraternity combines both the Accreditation materials and Awards submissions into one easy-to-complete format. The process also includes input from chapter advisors, alumni association officers, campus Greek advisors, and Headquarters staff, all of which assist in the accreditation and awards process. In this manner, one annual report fills several key objectives.
Accreditation is a mandatory process whereby your chapter annually provides information to demonstrate that it meets certain minimum standards of operations. The information will be compiled so the Grand Lodge and entire Fraternity will better understand each chapter’s current status. Additionally, this information is used to determine areas of operations where assistance is needed and/or resources should be added.
Pay close attention as you work through your submission to ensure your chapter is meeting not only the requirements for accreditation but also the optional activities that will be reviewed for award consideration.
- Chapters who start final exams on or before May 20, 2016 – Due April 22, 2016.
- Chapters starting final exams after May 20, 2016 – Due May 20, 2016.
National Honors and Awards
As part of the Annual Report to the Fraternity process each year, chapters that meet or exceed more than seven (7) Standards and submit a complete report by the deadline are considered for national honors and awards.

Those chapters meeting seven (7) or more Standards areas will be accredited for a period of one year. In addition, they will be featured in The UNICORN, on the Fraternity’s website, and a letter confirming their accreditation will be sent to local campus administrators.
NOTE: Any chapter failing to meet the submission deadline will not be eligible for award consideration.
