Fraternity Frequently Asked Questions
What sorts of things will we do during recruitment?
During recruitment, you will participate in a wide variety of activities. All of our activities are designed to give you the chance to meet the fraternity men on a one-on-one basis. You are given a lot of information about the Greek system and the individual chapters. You learn about our academic programs, community service projects, brotherhood events and all the leadership opportunities available to you within the chapters. In addition, you have the chance to ask any specific questions you may have. This is the chance for you to see what Greek Life has to offer!
Is there a cost to participate in recruitment?
There is a fee of $10 to participate in recruitment as long as you attend all sanctioned recruitment events. Men who do not participate in the recruitment process and accept a bid to join a fraternity prior to Recruitment Orientation or after Bid Day will be assessed a $25 informal recruitment fee.
Do I have to attend all the events?
No, you do not. However, to avoid being assessed the $25 IFC application fee, you must attend all sanctioned recruitment events (Sunday Orientation and two of four chapters’ parties). If you miss one of these events, you will be required to pay the $25 application fee.
What happens if I am unable to attend an event?
If you are unable to attend an event, but are still interested in recruitment, your regrets should be sent to the chapters. It is at each chapter’s discretion to extend an invitation to you after the Formal Recruitment process. You will be assessed the $25 informal recruitment fee.
Is there a grade point average (GPA) requirement?
To pledge an ASU fraternity, you must have a minimum grade point average of 2.25 (current ASU GPA or transfer GPA). First semester freshmen (no college credit) must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 based on high school transcripts.
If you do not have the grade point average required to pledge a fraternity, but are interested in learning more about Greek Life, you are still invited to participate in fraternity recruitment.
What is the $25 informal recruitment fee used for?
The application fee is used by the Interfraternity Council for various programs and activities, including hiring officials from University Recreation to officiate IFC sporting events. In addition, the application fee helps offset the cost of Formal Recruitment for the fraternities.
