Chapter Resources and Forms
Below you will find several resources geared towards helping you and your organization succeed at Texas State University. If there are any resources you feel we are missing, please do not hesitate to contact us to let us know.
Many forms can be filled out digitally using Adobe Acrobat, which is free to all TXST students with their NetID. For instructions on how to download Adobe Acrobat please visit the ITAC website or follow the steps listed in this document.
This summer the Fraternity and Sorority Life staff worked to create an inclusive manual that will help all chapter leaders in their roles. This manual is not meant for presidents alone. In it you will find resources for social chairs, new member educations, recruitment, academics, working with advisors, university departments/services, and so much more.
The links featured in this document are live and accessed best when the document is read using Adobe Acrobat.

Before filling out any forms to edit your roster, please review the Instructions for Updating Chapter Rosters document.
Please use this form to add or remove members from your chapter roster. All forms must be submitted before the deadline each update cycle. Rosters are updated twice a semester; once at the beginning of the semester to determine council dues and intake/recruitment eligibility (if applicable), and then again at the end of the semester to ensure accuracy on grade reports.
Greek Induction Form
This form is only available in the Fraternity and Sorority Life office to ensure the office is up to date on how many members an organization is taking through their Recruitment/Intake process.
After elections are complete, chapters must submit an Officer Update Form to the Fraternity and Sorority Life office. To complete the form you need to have each officers name, Texas State email address, cell phone number, and Student ID number (PLID). Officer Updates are now completed on the FSL Presidents TRACS page.
If you need to be added to the FSL Presidents TRACS page, please contact Fraternity and Sorority Life office.
The Fraternity and Sorority Life staff have created a Civic Engagement Manual to serve as a resource to all chapter leadership who have a part in the Civic Engagement Verification Process. In this manual you will find information on what civic engagement actually is, clarification of common misconceptions, ideas for events, and directions of filling out and submitting Civic Engagement Verification forms.
There are two forms that can be used for submitting Civic Engagement; one for events hosted by chapters and one for events members complete individually. If your headquarters has a form that you are required to use when submitting data to them you may bring it into the FSL office for approval, once approved you may use that form to submit data each month.
If civic engagement events fall under multiple officer positions it is recommend that individual officers be responsible for the completion of form pertaining to their position and one officer be responsible for the final submission of all chapter forms.
Reminder: Forms are due on the 8th of every month.
Before beginning any recruitment events or new member programs chapters must submit the appropriate New Member Education Approval Form. These forms must be turned into the FSL office in LBJSC 4-14.1
It is the chapter's responsibility to know and understand all policies that pertain to them. Below you will find the four most often referenced by our organizations.
This organization will be known as the Fraternity/Sorority Review Board (FSRB) of Texas State University.
Through self-governance, accountability and education, the FSRB will enforce the policies set forth by these “Rules of Operation;” Interfraternity Council (IFC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), Panhellenic Council (PHC), and National PanHellenic Council (NPHC) Constitutions and Bylaws; SA/PPS No. 07/10 Fraternity and Sorority Use of Alcohol at Social Events; University Hazing Policies for all Recognized Student Organizations (RSO’s); and, other related documents and forms.
Use this document while planning chapter events to assist you in determining how much risk the program has.
The Fraternal Information & Programming Group, of FIPG, has created a manual to assist chapters in programming fun and safe events. Several of our fraternities and sororities use or enforce guidelines that were created by FIPG. Click HERE to take a look at the Manual.
The Fraternity and Sorority Life staff have been working hard to bring you relevant and useful resources to help your chapter with academics. Some of these resources were created in-house, others have recommended to us, and all have been posted here for your use.

The Dean of Students Office – Fraternity and Sorority Life strongly believes in the power of philanthropic activities and community service that affirm the principles and values of your organization.
The Philanthropy and Community Service Handbook was developed by the Dean of Students Office – Fraternity and Sorority Life, adapted from Ball State University’s workbook, as an additional resource for Texas State University’s Greek community. It is our hope that this handbook will compliment your inter/national headquarters philanthropy and community service requirements and standards as well as introduce your chapter to the resources and support services available at Texas State University. The ultimate goals of this handbook are to:
- Identify resources that are available
- Clarify common mistakes
- Provide as educational experience exposing you to information you need to know
The Dean of Students Office – Fraternity and Sorority Life would like to support you in your philanthropic and community service endeavors.
You are expected to be familiar with the information contained in this manual. It is beneficial for the incoming offers to read, as they will have the opportunity to reflect on the foundation of their philanthropic and community service programs as well as create or modify a program that is reflective of the chapter’s values for the upcoming year.
This resource was designed to support both our Chapter Advisors and our Faculty/Staff Advisors.
Topics included in this manual are:
- Campus Resources
- Advising Students
- Crisis Management
We hope you find this resource helpful as you move forward supporting our students.
The Greek Resource Library was created as an effort to not only support the development of our chapters, but also assist individual members as they develop throughout their time here at Texas State University.
Please contact our office if you have any questions or are in need of additional assistance.
