Begin Your Journey to 32°

Journey deeper into the tenets and values of the Craft by joining 32° Scottish Rite Freemasonry™.

You share fraternal fellowship with a network of Brothers who seek to be the best version of themselves, expand their sense of purpose, and be of service to the world and our fellow man.

Building upon the lessons we learned in Blue Lodge, the Core Values and 29 degrees of the Scottish Rite mark the path to more light and unite us in our quest to become better men and better Masons.

We offer multiple ways for interested Master Masons to join our brotherhood by attending a 4° date in-person or online. New members had a great experience joining virtually last fall, which you can read more about here.

How Do I Become a 32° Scottish Rite Freemason?


  1. In order to become a 32° Scottish Rite Mason, you must first be a Master Mason. If you are not yet a Freemason, visit BeAFreemason.org to learn more and take the first step.

  2. If you are a Master Mason in one of the 15 Northern Masonic Jurisdiction states, submit a membership application to join a Scottish Rite Valley near you.

  3. Your Valley Secretary will review your application and send you more information on the membership process.

  4. Once you are approved as a degree candidate, you must witness the 4° at one of our virtual events or at an in-person reunion in your Valley to be initiated as a Scottish Rite Mason.

  5. Finally, to become a 32° Scottish Rite Mason, you must receive a minimum of five Scottish Rite degrees. You must receive the 4° and 32°, along with three additional degrees that focus on 32° Freemasonry’s six Core Values. These degrees can be received online or in-person. While not required, most men go on to view all 29 Scottish Rite degrees in the future.
