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.
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.
Current students with an established GPA may register for Primary Recruitment during their undergraduate collegiate career with a Georgia Southern GPA of 2.50 or higher based on at least 12 or more credits. 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.
Below are some additional pieces of information regarding membership in an IFC organization:
- East Georgia students are not eligible to join fraternities.
