We are glad you are interested in joining an IFC Fraternity! IFC encourages year-round recruitment with an additional structured "recruitment week" each fall semester.


Any male who is a full-time student with ASU-Jonesboro and has a minimum high school or college cumulative GPA of a 2.5 is academically eligible to join an IFC fraternity. Bids may be issued and accepted at any point during fall and springs semesters before University finals week. It is recommended that men register to participate in the "recruitment week" to gain a better understanding of each fraternity. See below for more information on the Fall Recruitment Week.

Recruitment Overview

Recruitment offers you an opportunity to meet chapter members and other young men participating in the Fall Recruitment process, while learning what each fraternity has to offer. Throughout the process Rho Chis will answer all questions that may arise while participating in recruitment. Rho Chis are upperclassmen fraternity men who have temporarily disaffiliated from their fraternities. They are trained in the recruitment process, and they are your mentor throughout this entire process. Participating in the recruitment process does not require you to join a fraternity. It does, however, enable you to explore and learn more about the ASU campus and our Greek community. This is a great way to meet new people and find out about many ways to get involved on the ASU campus. This process is intended to be a positive, fun, and enriching experience for everyone who participates. Please note that bids are not guaranteed, so you are strongly encouraged to meet as many chapter members as you can throughout this event. We also encourage you to keep an open mind.
