Are you interested in leadership, working with others, and building a lasting legacy at your university? Are you intrigued by the idea of collaborating with a diverse group of architecturally-oriented students and professionals across the country?


We are excited about the prospect of expanding to your university! Alpha Rho Chi establishes charters or "chapters in training", at qualified universities through our expansion program. Once approved to begin a chartering organization, students have up to two years to complete the fraternity’s requirements and petition for membership and establishment of a permanent chapter.


Take a moment and learn about what our members have to say about who Alpha Rho Chi is and gain some insight into our unique brotherhood.


To be considered for chartering, a university must:

  • Hold current accreditation by the National Architectural Accrediting Board;
  • Offer undergraduate and/or advanced degrees in architecture and the allied arts (e.g., landscape architecture, urban planning, construction management, interior design, etc.);
  • Be located in one of the 50 United States (We do not accept applications from schools located in U.S. territories or foreign nations.);
  • Submit, and receive acceptance of, an application to establish a chartering organization within associated prerequisites and guidelines; and
  • Pay all required establishment fees by the submission deadline.
