The Alabama Interfraternity Council (IFC) serves as the governing body for 34 fraternities at The University of Alabama, many of which are affiliated with the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), which is the trade association representing 58 international and national men’s fraternities. Fraternities provide a meaningful outlet for students to become involved in campus life outside the classroom through an emphasis on scholarship, leadership, community service, social life and lasting friendships. The IFC sponsors various programs throughout the year and works with the APA, NPHC, and UGC to strengthen and promote the UA Greek community’s values and vision.

When and how does this group admit new members?

There are two ways of seeking membership. Organizations recruit members and extend bids for membership before the beginning of classes for fall semester. The IFC also holds structured recruitment during late August and early September. During structured recruitment, prospective members have the opportunity to interact with individuals from each fraternity. Once prospective members have registered online, their information is shared with all IFC fraternities.
