Fraternity recruitment guide

 
  • You can register for recruitment through the Campus Director System here: alabamaifc.mycampusdirector2.com
  • Disclaimer: The 2020 Edition of the Interfraternity Council Guidebook was published before the COVID-19 pandemic. Please be aware that certain events, dates and information are no longer relevant. Please reference the recruitment schedule on our website for updated events, dates, and information on our current recruitment process.

All men interested in receiving an invitation for membership in any of the 32 IFC fraternity chapters at the University of Alabama are required to register with the Alabama Interfraternity Council through this website. There is a one-hundred and fifty dollar ($150.00) fee to register for recruitment. The registration fee is to cover the costs of the three recruitment events, a t-shirt, and the upkeep of the potential new member database. By registering for Recruitment your information will become available to all IFC fraternities at the University of Alabama participating in IFC recruitment. However, this does not guarantee that Chapters will contact you about specific recruitment events. It is recommended that you also contact the recruitment chairmen of individual chapters that you are interested in learning more about.  For a list of chapters and for their contact information, please visit our "IFC Chapters" tab.

Accepting bids:

In order to accept a Bid for membership, you MUST log into the Campus Director system, and accept your bid. The Campus Director portal opened on April 1, 2020. If a bid has been extended to you when you log in you will see a drop down menu for "Bids Extended." Select the chapter you would like to accept a bid from, and hit submit. If you do not have a list of bids extended you have not received a bid. You can receive multiple bids throughout this process. Should you receive a bid from a chapter, it does not become official until August 26, 2020. Once you accept a bid from a chapter you cannot accept a bid from any other IFC organization during the Fall Recruitment period.

Residence:

Men participating in IFC recruitment CANNOT move into residence halls early. There is no need to move in early to a residence hall for recruitment events or activities. Chapters should not request or require that any new member or potential new member arrive on campus prior to their selected move in dates. All move in arrangements and registrations should be made through the Office of Housing & Residential Communities. 

If you are interested in learning more about your housing options, and to schedule your move in date, please visit the Office of Housing & Residential Communities website or you can call their office at either (888) 498- BAMA or (205) 348-6676.

This video will introduce Alabama IFC and our Executive Council. It will also provide an all-inclusive virtual chapter spotlight for the 32 IFC chapters. We hope this video allows Potential New Members to become more informed on our IFC chapters, the recruitment process, and value of joining a fraternity at The University of Alabama.
