Recruitment

General IFC Recruitment Information

IFC encourages year-round recruitment with an additional structured “recruitment week” each fall and spring semester. Once a student has achieved the minimum university and IFC eligibility requirements, they are able to join an IFC fraternity.  Bids may be issued and accepted by registered, eligible individuals in accordance with University and IFC policies during fall and spring semesters. First time freshmen students cannot receive a bid until the formal recruitment week.

Although the university requirement for eligibility in a fraternity or sorority is a 2.5 GPA, the Interfraternity Council has raised the bar and set a strict requirement of a 2.75 GPA for High School or a 2.5 GPA for those with at least 12 college credit hours. 

Fall 2022 Recruitment Week: September 10 – 16

Register for Recruitment! – You must register and have your eligibility verified in order to receive a bid on Bid Day!

Each semester the Interfraternity Council hosts a Recruitment Week of scheduled chapter events. This week is structured so you are able to interact with all of our organizations in order to find the one that fits best for you. The schedule below will be updated as each organization finalizes their event details. Be sure to register for recruitment early so you get updated information sent directly to you!
