Any male high school graduate that is attending Washington State University either currently or is going to attend Washington State University within one academic term of acceptance can join through formal or informal recruitment.

Formal Recruitment takes place annually a week before the fall semester. It gives potential new members of our community the opportunity to meet and speak with all recognized IFC chapters on Washington State’s campus.

Informal Recruitment takes place in two waves – fall and spring. A student can receive and accept a bid to join a fraternity each semester in a variety of ways, but usually through a recruitment event independently organized by the chapters.

Recruitment Registration Calendar

Incoming students for the 2023-2024 recruitment year, do not register for recruitment until AFTER June 1st, 2023.  If you register beforehand, your recruitment fee will go toward the 2022-2023 recruitment year and will not roll over leaving you ineligible to join an organization.


Potential new members can join a fraternity after being officially ‘bid’ by the organization and have accepted the offer electronically through the university’s recruitment website CampusDirector. You must register for recruitment, no matter which recruitment path is taken, in order to join a chapter.
