Pathfinder Wizard of High Sorcery PrC
In order to become a Wizard of High Sorcery a character must fulfill all of the following requirements.
Alignment: Any Good (White Robe), Any Neutral (Red Robe), or Any Evil (Black Robe).
The Wizard of High Sorcery class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Bluff (red robes) (Cha), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (white robes) (Cha), Intimidate (black robes) (Cha), Knowledge (all) (Int), Linguistics (Int), and Profession (Wis).

You may notice that this conversion differs from that of the WoHS PrC in Towers of High Sorcery in particular the lack of the Spellcraft skill and the inclusion of the robe exclusive social interaction skills of Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate.
Spellcraft was excluded simply because of how skills work in Pathfinder. Since it is already on the wizard's list of class skills and already gets the benefit of the +3 bonus on checks for class skills it was deemed redundant. The number of ranks needed in the skill was also reduced because a character can only have a number of ranks in a skill equal to his class level, which will allow the PrC to be taken at 5th level.
Just as each order has a different approach to their magic, so too does each order typically have different approaches to their social interactions. This is the reason for having each interaction be the province of a particular Order of High Sorcery. This is not to suggest that all red robes are deceivers, or that all white robes are diplomatic; it is simply a tool to help shape one's character. Any character can learn any skill; they just won't be as good at it as someone who has it on his list of class skills.
