The Interfraternity Council (IFC) follows the 365 day year round recruitment model, meaning they do not have a formal recruitment period and instead allow the chapters to recruit members anytime during the year. To assist incoming students find the best fraternity for them, we encourage every person to fill out the IFC Recruitment Interest Form. This form allows the council to notify you of any open events they are hosting throughout the year where you can meet the chapters. The council will also share your information with the chapter Recruitment Chairs so they are able to communicate with you about upcoming recruitment events for their chapter.

The process to join an National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) organization is called the Membership Intake Process (MIP). Each MIP will be held to Texas State University and the national organization's standards, as the process to become a member is handled independently by each chapter. A chapter that is accepting new members will notify the Greek Affairs Office and post flyers for an Information Session around campus. These flyers will typically be posted 30 days prior to the session taking place. Since each chapter could hold MIP at different times throughout the academic year, we recommend you take the time to fill out our Intake Interest Form. This allows us to gather the necessary information from you and share it with the chapters once they are approved to accept new members.
The Panhellenic Council hosts a formal recruitment process at the beginning of each semester. This is the best way for women to join a Panhellenic sorority as all chapters will be participating to take new members.

After the conclusion of Formal Recruitment, any chapters who still have space within the chapter are eligible to participate in Continuous Open Recruitment (COR). COR is not coordinated by the council but rather by the chapters who are looking for new members.
