Spring 2018 Formal Recruitment: January and February 2018

Formal Recruitment for Miami fraternities and sororities begins in the next couple of weeks. Interfraternity Council (IFC) fraternity recruitment begins on the afternoon of Sunday, January 28, and Panhellenic Association sorority recruitment begins on the evening of Thursday, February 1. National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) organizations participate in intake (a process for joining a sorority or fraternity), which follows an individual process that is unique to each chapter. Below is information about joining a Miami fraternity or sorority.

Online New Member Course

The Cliff Alexander Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life has developed an online orientation course to help ensure your student has a safe and meaningful new member experience in one of Miami's fraternities or sororities. In order to participate in the recruitment process, students must complete both Part 1 and Part 2 of the Introduction to Fraternity & Sorority Life Course. Completion of this course is required for all interested in joining the community and all who accept a bid. However, completion of this course does not guarantee an invitation to membership. Students who registered for formal recruitment were emailed all necessary information and deadlines to complete the course.

IFC Enhanced Membership Experience Plans - NOW ONLINE

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) has published each respective fraternity's Enhanced Membership Experience (EME) plans on their website. Each chapter that has successfully completed their EME has posted it for potential new members and their families to view. A completed EME plan will include an outline of the new member process, a calendar of events, and a letter to families. IFC is actively working with all organizations that have not completed their EME guide. If you have any questions about a specific chapter's new membership process, please reach out to the chapter directly. Chapter contact information is available online.
