Interfraternity Council (IFC)

What exactly is the IFC?

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the governing body of the North-American Interfraternity Council (also known as the NIC) fraternities represented at UT Arlington, providing support and services to fraternities as well as representing fraternity life to the University and the surrounding community. Student officers serve on the IFC Executive Board. For more information on the IFC's National Governing body - the NIC, please visit the NIC website.

How the IFC operates

The IFC meets every Wednesday at 12:05 p.m. during the academic year in the Student Congress Chambers, Upper Level of the University Center. Each member chapter is required to send a representative (a delegate). At each meeting, each of the executive officers gives his report on any issues that have arisen within the past week, and updates the council as to any progress he has made in furthering the agenda and goals he has set forth at the beginning of his term. Later, each chapter is required to vote on any initiatives which seek to better the welfare of the member chapters.

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) Mission

The council's primary concern is the safety, security, and advancement of each member fraternity. To this end, the IFC works closely with the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life in supporting the UTA Community Pillars which are Brotherhood/Sisterhood, Scholarship, Philanthropy/Community Service and Leadership. Additionally, the Interfraternity Council strives to uphold the NIC Standards included but not limited to: open expansion, alcohol & drug-free recruitment efforts, academic success, and open recruitment. Through various programs and activities by the council and member fraternities, we support a values-based fraternal experience for all students.

How to join an ifc fraternity- fall 2014

Each semester the IFC hosts formal recruitment as an opportunity for students to meet members and learn about the organization. During the formal recruitment week, IFC and member fraternities host various events both on and off-campus which are fun and promote the NIC Standard of alcohol & drug-free recruitment.

All new students & transfer students are automatically eligible to participate. In addition, any current UT Arlington students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (no grade exclusions will be accepted). To register and pay your $10.00 registration fee, CLICK HERE.
