I would think, for example, if i was in an NPC at my alma mater (for example), that someone in my chapter (ideally, president or pledge educator) would know each local chapter's stance is on transfers.

Not exactly written down like SOPs, but more like, oh the Alpha Beta chapter at State University is pretty open about transfers, but the Alpha Gamma chapter at City Tech College, they only take 5 a year during the fall semester.

This would make sense regionally, through a regional or national officer even.

I know im super lane-swerving, even in my school because my college has a high percentage of transfers. From what i've learned on Gc it seems like its par for the course in some university systems to transfer in after sophomore/junior year (i'm thinking the UT system, or Penn State, schools that have multiple campuses).

Again, lane-swerving, but does it hurt to work together a little? maybe some of this happens already and im not privy.
ASA and G Phi B are really the only ones (right now) that have to deal with the Penn State branch to Penn State main issue. Most of the branches don't have NPC groups, and the other groups at the branches that do have NPCs (AST and Theta Phi Alpha) don't have chapters at the main campus. I can assure you that the girls it may potentially affect know what's up.

As far as the OP was concerned, she was more asking about a national policy than whether she would be welcomed by (random) the UT chapter, or the Syracuse chapter. To lay things out as explicitly as you described would probably never happen. That's for the individual to pursue on her own.
It is all 33girl's fault. ~DrPhil
