How to Join an IFC Chapter

During Fall of 2020 there will be three ways to join an IFC Chapter at the University of Mississippi; Formal Recruitment, Open Bidding and joining one of the chapters that is expanding to Ole Miss. Learn more about each option using the information and links below.

Formal Recruitment

Formal recruitment is the primary way Potential New Members (PNMs) join our community. Coordinated by the IFC Recruitment Team each Fall semester, the week long structured process consists of a series of events called Rounds. PNMs start off visiting each chapter and as the week continues will participate in a mutual selection process to narrow down their options. By last round PNMs have the opportunity to receive a bid from up to four chapters. Click here to learn more about IFC Formal Recruitment.

Open Bidding

IFC open bidding is when fraternities extend membership invitations outside the formal recruitment process. Open bidding begins the day after Bid Day for two weeks, then opens again the first day of classes in the spring semester for one month. Time frames are subject to change based on academic calendar and formal recruitment dates. Potential new members should communicate with the recruitment chairs of fraternities they are interested in to learn more about each chapter’s open bidding process. Note, not every fraternity will conduct open bidding. Click here to learn more about IFC Open Bidding. 

Join a New Chapter

This fall Potential New Members will have the opportunity to join one of two fraternities that are reestablishing at the University of Mississippi. Click here to learn more about Delta Tau Delta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
