Governing Council

Interfraternity Council (IFC)

There are two major periods in which IFC recruits new members to its 26 organizations (24 men’s and 2 co-ed groups): Informal Recruitment in the Fall semester and Formal Recruitment in the Spring semester. It’s important to note that Informal Recruitment is only for sophomores, juniors, and seniors, which Formal Recruitment is also open to freshmen.

However, only students that meet the eligibility requirements are able to join in the fall. Students must have at least a 2.50 GPA and have 4 completed course units. Individual chapter requirements may apply.

Registration for 2021 IFC Formal Recruitment is coming soon!

For spring recruitment, the process begins by signing up on Campus Director, in which prospective students fill out an e-application that helps OFSL determine eligibility for joining.

After registering, if you would like to request an accommodation due to a disability, please contact the Office of Student Disabilities Services at 215-573-9235 or through their website. Please contact the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life if you would like to request access to an event by calling 215-898-5264.
