Section 6.513 of the Kappa Kappa Psi National Constitution defines inactive status, and outlines the process for Inactive Reinstatement as follows:
Former active or associate members who are enrolled in school but do not pay member dues shall be classified as inactive members. Inactive members have no privileges of Fraternity membership. Inactive members may not participate in any Fraternity business, projects, or activities. To obtain privileges of membership, said member must request, in writing, reinstatement by the chapter from which the member became inactive. Upon review of the inactive member’s written request, the inactive member must receive a favorable vote of seventy-five (75) percent of the eligible voting membership, the approval of the chapter sponsor, and payment of all financial obligations to both the chapter and the Fraternity in order to be granted privileges of membership.
Inactive members seeking alumni status, may complete an Inactive Reinstatement form in the Online Membership System (OPUS). This form is intended for use by inactive members seeking reinstatement following their graduation or other termination of their association with their colleges and universities. This form should be submitted to the President and Sponsor of the inactive member’s former chapter. In situations where the relevant chapter is no longer active, the inactive member’s petition would instead be reviewed by the National Council of Kappa Kappa Psi, which, with a majority vote, can grant reinstatement upon the inactive member’s payment of membership dues at their current rate. Upon reinstatement, such members will become alumni members of the fraternity (and eligible for life membership), membership in the Kappa Kappa Psi Alumni Association, and/or other participation in fraternity business, projects, and activities. The Inactive Reinstatement form should not be used for inactive members seeking to return to active, conditional, or associate status.
