Interfraternity Council (IFC)

Thanks for your interest in joining an Interfraternity Council (IFC) fraternity at Georgia Southern University! Fraternities within the Interfraternity Council at Georgia Southern University have a formal one week recruitment process as well as an informal, year-round recruitment which allows men to join organizations at any point throughout their experience at Georgia Southern.

IFC Formal Recruitment Events

IFC Formal Recruitment is now closed for the Fall 2017 Semester. Please check back for more information regarding Spring 2018 and Fall 2018 recruitment information. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to stop by or call the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.

GPA Requirement

The GPA to register for recruitment is a 2.75 or higher high school GPA, as calculated by the Georgia Southern University Office of Admissions. This GPA  is based on the Required High School Curriculum. This is NOT the final high school GPA listed on your transcript or your HOPE GPA. Before registering for recruitment, you can check your GPA using your online Admissions Status Check Page.

Transfer students with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher based on at least 12 or more credits may also register for Primary Recruitment.  As you’re looking at your membership options, please keep in mind that some chapters may have higher GPA requirement for membership.
