FRATERNITY RECRUITMENT

At Clemson, fraternity recruitment is a process in which you have the opportunity to join a lifelong brotherhood. There are two main parts of recruitment: informal (pre-rush) recruitment and formal recruitment. Registration for IFC Rush at Clemson University is done through Campus Director.

ELIGIBILITY TO RUSH

  • All first-year students.

  • If you are a returning Clemson student or transferring from another institution, you must have a 2.7 cumulative GPA. You would have a Clemson GPA if you attended at least one semester and taken any classes with grades, including summer classes for students that are not in the Bridge to Clemson program.

  • Current Bridge Students are not able to participate.

  • You should not be an initiated brother/full member of any other national fraternity whether at Clemson University or from another campus. If you are a transfer student wishing to affiliate with the chapter you joined at your previous school, please email the chapter president for the chapter here at Clemson (can be found at using chapter contact list above) and aruhl@clemson.edu.

  • You must complete all registration and pre-rush education processes.

  • If you are a crossing Bridge student or transferring from another institution, you will need to provide your final transcript (unofficial is acceptable). You will be able to upload this when you register. Failure to upload your transcript if you are a crossing Bridge or transfer student can disqualify you from the rush process.

PRE- AND POST-RUSH EDUCATION

IFC Pre-Rush Orientation: During this session we will cover important things to know about joining a fraternity. You will be assigned your Orientation date/time based on your Rush Guide Group.​

IFC Post-Rush Orientation: This will take place the Sunday after Bid Distribution each semester. During this we will discuss the expectations of chapters, new members, and cover important policies and resources around personal health and safety.

IFC New Member Series: This information will be shared with you if you receive a bid from your chapter. This consists of 4 developmental workshops hosted by IFC upperclassmen that focus on personal development, well-being, and being a part of a community larger than yourself. Participation is mandatory for any individual that receives a bid and chooses to join a chapter within IFC.
