WHAT IS A PROFESSIONAL CO-ED FRATERNITY?
Co-ed fraternities are organizations promoting the interests of a certain academic profession and differ from social fraternities and sororities. Co-ed fraternities cater to both men and women.

However, we do accept students of other majors based on certain exceptions.
WHAT IS RECRUITMENT?
Recruitment is a 1-2 week-long series of events, where our chapter is able to meet, network, and recruit potential members interested in joining our fraternity. During this week, potential members can learn more about what Delta Sigma Pi is, what the fraternity has to offer, and get to know all the active brothers. UCSB holds recruitment at the beginning of Fall Quarter and beginning of Winter Quarter.
WHAT IS A BID?
A bid is a formal invitation to participate in a quarter long pledging program to join the fraternity and become an active member.
CAN I STILL JOIN DELTA SIGMA PI IF I AM A MEMBER OF ANOTHER FRATERNITY/SORORITY?
You can be a member of both a social fraternity and sorority as well as a professional fraternity. However, to be eligible to join Delta Sigma Pi, you cannot be a member of another organization under the Professional Fraternity Council.
WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT?
The time commitment in joining Delta Sigma Pi can be taken in comparison to a 4-unit university course. However, the time commitment varies, depending on how much effort one showcases during the pledging program.
CAN I RECRUIT AGAIN IF I DID NOT GET A BID INVITATION TO PLEDGE?
Yes! You can recruit again to showcase your personal and professional development and improvement. However, you cannot join Delta Sigma Pi if you are associated with another professional fraternity, excluding a social fraternity and sorority.
