All men interested in receiving an invitation for membership in any of the 33 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 twenty-five dollar ($125.00) charge to register for recruitment. The registration fee is to cover the costs of the three recruitment events, a tee-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 the website listed below.
In order to accept a Bid for membership, you MUST log into the Campus Director system, and accept your bid. The Campus Director portal WILL NOT open until April 1. 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 30, 2018.
Once you accept a bid from a chapter you cannot accept a bid from any other IFC organization during the Fall Recruitment period.
Also, the Alabama Interfraternity Council will be hosting IFC Open House rounds beginning on August 19, and continuing through August 28. These events will occur in the evening and all IFC fraternities will be participating. During these events anyone interested in learning about an IFC fraternity may visit a chapter, meet it's members, and pursue membership in that organization. If you receive a bid during the Open House period you will need to accept your bid through the Campus Director system.
Men participating in IFC recruitment CANNOT move into residence halls early. The IFC does not have any formal scheduled recruitment events before the evening of August 19, 2018. Therefore, 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 at their website www.housing.ua.edu or you can call their office at either (888)-498- BAMA or (205)-348-6676.
