IFC Fall 2023 Recruitment

Fall recruitment is a formal and mutual selection process. This means potential new members (that's you; also called PNMs) rank the fraternities they would most like to return to, and the chapters submit a list of PNMs they would like to invite back. Those two lists are matched, and that is how schedules for the following round are created. It is important to know that every fraternity has a different, private process they go through in completing their lists. For a potential new member to participate in the recruitment process at the University of Arizona, he must be a full-time enrolled student at the University of Arizona.

IFC Fall 2023 Recruitment Designated Recruitment Period

There will be two dates that begin each designated recruitment period. A chapter or alumni member, or anyone acting on a fraternity’s behalf, may not initiate contact with a PNM by telephone, social media, in person, or in writing outside of scheduled recruitment events starting:

  1. The first-time, first-semester freshman designated recruitment period will begin May 1, 2023, and will conclude on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.
    • The chapters will refrain from communicating and giving out bids to a student who has never taken a college course during this period.
  2. The formal designated recruitment period will begin on Tuesday, August 1, 2023, and will conclude on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.
    • The chapters will refrain from communicating and giving out bids to any student during this period. 

If a PNM contacts an active chapter member during the formal recruitment week, the active member should refer the PNM to the IFC VP of Membership.  

Chapter Conduct & Judicial Status 

Fraternity & Sorority Programs publishes information regarding the conduct and sanctioning of current or past fraternities and sororities. Unfortunately, some fraternities/sororities engage in behaviors inconsistent with the expectations and policies of the institution and/or national organization. The University of Arizona urges students and their family members to learn more about groups currently functioning without university recognition. Those with concerns regarding activities of these organizations should contact the Dean of Students Office. If you have questions please contact our office or the Dean of Students.

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

Financial Information

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

Support Information

Why should my student 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 opportunities, philanthropic efforts, campus involvement, and community service. Check out this Greek Parent Orientation Video.
