How to Join
There will be no in-person recruitment in the fall 2020 semester. However, potential members can join an IFC fraternity though continuous open bidding, commonly referred to as informal recruitment or 365 recruitment. Chapters will use virtual recruitment tactics to ensure the safety to potential members and fraternity members.
It is important to make an informed decision when joining an IFC organization. Review the information provided on each of these pages to make an educated choice about which fraternity might be right for you!
Summer & Fall Recruitment 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no formal in-person recruitment schedule exists by the Interfraternity Council as all chapters will be recruiting independently. Chapters will use virtual recruitment tactics in order to ensure the safety to potential members and fraternity members. This proccess is typically referred to as informal recruitment or 365 recruitment.
If you are interested in joining an IFC fraternity, there are two primary ways to do so. An interested male student is free to join a fraternity when he determines it is in his best interest. All chapters are free to determine when they wish to extend an invitation to join to a male student.

Chapter GPA Requirements
Requirements vary from chapter to chapter, but a general recommendation is a 2.75 core high school GPA for those coming straight from high school and a 2.5 minimum college GPA for those who have at least 12 units taken toward a college GPA. While there is no required GPA to participate in recruitment, IFC strongly recommends a PNM to meet or exceed the general recommended GPA. Core high school GPA will be verified from grades 9–11.
If there is a significant increase in core GPA in grade 12, you may submit updates with an official transcript directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The financial breakdown of each chapter is located on the Costs of Membership webpage.
Once recruitment registration is completed, PNMs may receive an updated and detailed spreadsheet. The Interfraternity Council is not able to answer chapter specific questions about finances. If you, or your student, receives a bill that is more than 10% different than the amount listed, please contact the Interfraternity Council immediately at email@example.com.
Why should my child join a Greek organization?
At the University of Arizona, we take great pride in our Greek organizations and all that they stand for. College can be so much more than just classes and homework; it is also a time for growth and development. Greek Life can foster the education of the whole person. Having your student be a part of a Greek organization means several things, including long lasting friendships, academics, leadership and campus involvement, and community service.
