Sigma Kappa Legacy Policy

Importance of legacies: It is the belief of Sigma Kappa Sorority that our legacies are extremely important to the success of our sorority. When the chapter is determining whom they wish to pledge, the chapter shall give careful consideration to the following relatives/step-relatives of collegiate members and active Sigma Kappa alumnae:

  • Sister
  • Daughter
  • Granddaughter
  • Niece

While Sigma Kappa strongly encourages chapters to invite legacies to join our membership, legacy status does not guarantee membership and chapters are not required to pledge legacies.

 

Submit a Recruitment Introduction Form for a Legacy

Chapters will only know a potential new member is a legacy if a recruitment introduction form (RIF) is submitted on her behalf. Please review the FAQs and complete a RIF by selecting “Recommend a Member” located on the bottom of every Sigma Kappa webpage.

 

Recruitment Introduction Form FAQs
Why should I submit a recruitment introduction form (RIF)? 

Sigma Kappa collegiate and alumnae members have the privilege and responsibility to grow our sisterhood by recommending outstanding leaders who share our values of personal growth, friendship, service, and loyalty 

  

How are RIFs used? 

RIFs are a great way to introduce and recommend or not recommend a potential new member (PNM) to a Sigma Kappa for membership. A RIF doesn't guarantee a PNM will receive a bid, but it provides important information about her values and helps our collegiate chapters engage in meaningful conversation during recruitment. RIFs may be submitted to recommend, or not to recommend, a PNM.

  

Should I submit a RIF for a Sigma Kappa legacy? 

Yes! A RIF is a great way to introduce a legacy to collegiate chapter and allows time to verify her legacy status before recruitment. 

  

What is Sigma Kappa's legacy policy? 

When the chapter is determining whom they wish to pledge, the chapter shall give careful consideration to the following relatives/step-relatives of collegiate members and active Sigma Kappa alumnae: sister, daughter, granddaughter, and niece. While Sigma Kappa strongly encourages chapters to invite legacies to join our membership, legacy status does not guarantee membership and chapters are not required to pledge legacies. 

  

Will I be notified if my legacy will not receive a bid? 

In the event a legacy will not receive a bid to join Sigma Kappa only alumnae who completed a RIF and indicated they wish to receive a release notification will be contacted. 

  

Are RIFs also used for COB? 

Yes. You may submit a RIF at any point during the year so please recommend women interested in COB. 

  

How do I claim my account to submit a RIF? 
  1. Click the 'Login' icon at the top right hand side of the web page.
  2. When you arrive at the Login page, click on the 'claim account' button.
  3. Fill out the short 'Claim Your Account form. Once you have completed both steps click 'submit.'

  

I've completed an online RIF. Should I send the same information directly to the chapter? 

No. References are delivered electronically directly to the chapter officers and advisors responsible for recruitment, so there is no need to send the information to the chapter.  

  

What should I do if I have problems completing a RIF? 

If you need assistance, or have questions about a RIF or a legacy you have submitted, please contact info@sigmakappa.org.
