Frequently Asked Questions- Spring Recruitment
With questions about access or to request any disability-related accommodations that will facilitate your full participation in IFC Recruitment such as ASL interpreting, captioned videos, Braille or electronic text, etc. please contact: Lauren Leif, Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Programs, at email@example.com.
Q: Is there a grade requirement to receive a bid?
A: 2.75 cumulative (unweighted) High School GPA if coming straight from high school and a 2.50 cumulative GPA from college. This information will be verified using university records. All GPAs are verified through UAccess so if you have a transfer college gpa please email a transcript to IFC at firstname.lastname@example.org as transfer records in UAccess are limited.
Q: What if I don’t meet the required minimum GPA?
A: We recommend that if you do not meet the grade point requirement, take a semester to focus on academics, get involved with one of the many student clubs at the University of Arizona, and then consider joining a fraternity the following semester. If you choose to continue with the recruitment process, please know that your experience will be severely limited as the majority of fraternities (if not all) will not be able to extend you an invitation for membership, which is why we strongly suggest waiting until you meet the required grade point average.
Q: Will I get a bid?
A: Please note that our spring recruitment process is extremely informal and a bid is never guaranteed, which is why we encourage men to visit as many fraternities as they can on Monday and Tuesday during the open chapter events to remain in consideration for a larger number of chapters for the invite only events starting on Wednesday. Only about 40% of men participating in the spring recruitment process will receive an invitation to join at the end of the week, which is why it is important to keep an open mind and visit as many chapters as possible.
