How to Join

Roughly 30% of all Miami students are members of Greek organizations on campus. The three Governing Councils conduct recruitment independently of one another. The following links will provide more information about each process:

Interfraternity Council (IFC)

Interfraternity Council Executive Officers

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.

Am I eligible to join an IFC fraternity?

In order to join an IFC fraternity, you must have completed, at Miami University or other accredited institution of higher education:

  • 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)
  • the on-line education course prior to the start of recruitment

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. Only transcripts from the most recent institution attended will be considered. Once membership has been gained to a fraternity or sorority, it is up to each chapter to determine an individual's requirements to maintain membership.
