The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the umbrella organization for recognized fraternities on campus. IFC consists of one representative from each fraternity and an executive board of 10 annually elected officers.

  • one full-time fall or spring semester
  • 12 college credit hours (does not include AP, IB, dual-enrollment credit achieved in high school)
  • at least a 2.75 minimum grade point average (transfer GPAs cannot be combined - only the most recent college GPA received will be considered)

Student eligibility will be verified by the Cliff Alexander Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life prior to the chapter extending any form of invitation to membership.
