2020 GPA Requirement
As agreed upon by all IFC fraternities through the IFC Bylaws, Potential New Members must have a 2.80/4.00 cumulative GPA to participate in IFC Fraternity Formal Recruitment, receive a membership invitation any time during the year, and be initiated into an IFC fraternity. Please note, dual enrollment hours (collegiate credit hours taken during high school) will not count as collegiate credit hours for the purposes of recruitment eligibility.
Students that do not have the required 2.8 high school GPA or 2.8 collegiate GPA (if they have taken 12 or more collegiate credit hours following their high school graduation) have the opportunity to appeal to the IFC Judicial Board to participate in IFC Fraternity Formal Recruitment. Due to the Fraternity & Sorority Life’s academic policies the IFC Judicial Board will not be able to consider any appeals for a GPA under a 2.60. Please note, though, that simply because the IFC Judicial Board grants an appeal to a Potential New Member does not guarantee that an IFC fraternity will offer a bid for membership.
For those students who do not meet the minimum GPA requirement, please first register for IFC Fraternity Formal Recruitment and then find the the appeal form in the IFC Fraternity Formal Recruitment Registration Confirmation email. Please note, there are no refunds for those who are not granted an appeal.
2020 IFC Recruitment Guide
The 2020 Recruitment Guide will be available soon! In the meantime, you may reference the 2019 Recruitment Guide here.
Formal Recruitment Resources
The below forms will be available 1 month prior to the start of the 2020 Formal Recruitment Process.
Absentee Form- Use this form if you will need to be absent from any Formal Recruitment events. All absences MUST be reported prior to the event. Absence’s are subject to approval based on relevance. The recruitment team will do their best to accommodate all relevant absences but cannot guarantee anything.
Withdrawal Form- We encourage all participants to keep an open mind throughout the recruitment process. If participants decide they would like to withdrawal from the process they must fill out this form. Participants who choose to withdrawal are reminded that the recruitment fee is non-refundable.
Recommendation letters are not required to go through recruitment. They are, however, helpful in the recruitment process. You may send more than one letter of recommendation if you wish. DO NOT include transcripts or test scores with your recommendation letters. Fraternities will receive your overall GPA before Formal Recruitment begins; therefore, transcripts are not necessary.
To learn more about recommendation letters, please visit the IFC FAQs page.
Students should submit their final high school or college transcripts after graduation or course completion. Grades are verified by the transcripts on file with the University of Mississippi. The cumulative GPA on the transcript is the one used for Formal Recruitment.
Students should make sure their academic transcripts reflect a cumulative GPA on a 4.00 scale. Because your high school or college understands your courses and credits best, Fraternity & Sorority Life and the university do not calculate a cumulative GPA. Please make sure the cumulative GPA on a 4.00 scale is listed on the transcript before it is mailed to the university.
Update and mail final transcripts ASAP to:
Office of Admissions, P.O. Box 1848, University, MS 38677-1848.
How do I know if IFC has received my online registration form?
You should receive a confirmation email once you click “Submit” when registering online. If you don’t reach the confirmation page, please email email@example.com You will also receive an emailed receipt for your registration fees when paid.
Once a student registers for Formal Recruitment, they will begin receiving email updates from IFC from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
I forgot something on my registration or my residence hall location has changed, how do I update my application?
Log back into CampusDirector anytime using your Ole Miss WebID and password to edit your registration. All edits must be completed before August 25, 2020. Note, once you are logged back into CampusDirector, click on “Edit Account” on the left side of the page. You may see some information missing in “read only” fields. Don’t worry! Fraternity & Sorority Life staff will update that information every Friday afternoon leading up to Formal Recruitment. There will be some fields that you will not be able to edit; however, you will be able to edit those fields that you entered at the time of your registration.
I keep getting a message that reads, “WebID Authorization – WebID Authorization Stale Request.” What do I do?
Because Fraternity & Sorority Life is using your Ole Miss WebID to generate your CampusDirector account, sometimes that authorization times out for security reasons. Simply clear your web browser’s history, cache, cookies, etc. from the past hour or so. If you refresh the page, you should be able to proceed. Feel free to call 662.915.7609 if you have any issues with this!
