AI:Requires a college degree?

I believe that at least one of the NPHC fraternities requires that someone actually have Bachelors degree in order to become a brother through a graduate chapter.

Does this also apply to any/all of the NPC AI?

Not Alpha Chi. A lot of AIs are mothers of actives. Not all moms had the chance to go to college.

Alpha Xi Delta does not require any college. Our AI are usually moms, friends, etc.

I can't find it right now (I strongly dislike the organization of our new website update) but I'm fairly certain we don't require college graduation either.

Theta requires that an alumna initiate have attended college, but I do not see a requirement that she is required to have graduated.

I thought we had a requirement that an AI attended at least one year of college, but after reviewing our requirements on our website, nothing about that is mentioned. Perhaps this has changed. Or maybe I'm remembering this wrong.

Either way, IMO, it doesn't make sense to require that an AI has attended college. Being initiated in this manner isn't an everyday thing, and it's generally reserved for people who have served the organization in some manner, and/or have been recognized by a current member as obviously possessing traits and values that are aligned with those of the organization. I can't see how attending college would affect that in any way.

And honestly, most AIs that I've seen initiated in our organization are older (50+ years old). Attending college when they were in their late teens wasn't as common as it is now. And if you're willing to offer AI, how backwards is it to accept thousands of new members each year who just stepped foot onto a college campus and have virtually no exposure to the organization, but then turn someone away who, for example, has spent years working at headquarters, or has served as a beloved house mother for decades, simply because she never went to college?

We used to require 2 years but I believe it's been waived altogether.

NPHC grad membership =/= (like really really =/=) to NPC AI.
