Panhellenic Continuous Open Bidding

Continuous Open Bidding

Continuous Open Bidding (COB) is an informal process in which eligible chapters are permitted to host recruitment events. COB occurs during the fall and winter semesters and serves as an opportunity for women to join participating National Panhellenic Conference sororities and our associate member sorority. Only eligible chapters may participate in COB so the number of chapters is subject to change each term. If a chapter is not participating in COB, they are not permitted to hold events or issue bids during this time.

Participating chapters plan and execute their own COB process and events.  If you are interested in COB information please check back here for more details. You can express your interest by filling out this form

Students wishing to participate in COB must meet institutional eligibililty requirements. Click here for information on the process and how to verify your eligibility.
