IFC & Local Fraternity Recruitment
Fraternity recruitment is held twice a year, at the beginning of both the fall and spring semesters. The fall semester is reserved for upperclassmen and transfer students (with at least 12 Baylor credit hours at a 2.67 cumulative GPA or 24 transfer hours from an institution of higher education at a 3.0 cumulative GPA). Freshman students are eligible to receive a bid in the Spring when they meet these requirements. The deadline to register for recruitment is February 3rd.

MANDATORY EDG (Effectively Developing Greeks)
Previously, Effectively Developing Greeks was an in-person education module for all individuals going through the recruitment process. This module is now available online and may be completed any time during the recruitment process as long as the module is completed by the registration deadline of February 3rd. This education module is MANDATORY for anyone going through the recruitment process. In order to access EDG, you will need to log into Connect just as you log into your email.
YOU MUST COMPLETE THIS MODULE TO RECEIVE A BID! YOU MUST ALSO REGISTER BEFORE FEBRUARY 3rd TO BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A BID.
(If you have questions please e-mail Vincent Phillips at Vincent_Phillips@baylor.edu)
The second step to successfully registering for recruitment is to complete the ICS form. This allows your information to be captured and your completion status to be tracked. This also allows for your eligibility status to be shared with your desired organization. You will receive emails on your status accordingly. At the end of the form, you will be taken to the payment link.
Students who do not meet the academic and/or credit hours requirement have the option to appeal to the Department of Student Activities. All appeals will be reviewed and responded to before bid day. The link to appeal is located below. The last day to appeal is February 3rd. Appeals submitted after February 3rd will not be accepted. In order to access the Appeal form you must be logged into Connect.

Bid day is the official end of the recruitment process. This special time gives fraternity chapters a chance to celebrate and extend bids to eligible young men. Bids will be extended to eligible individuals on February 10th.
**Please note that bids are not guaranteed. So, you are strongly encouraged to meet as many chapter members as you can, including the entire recruitment process, as well as keeping an open mind.**
