The Interfraternity Council (IFC) serves as the self-governing body for the 14 general fraternities at the University of California Irvine. It consists of the Executive Board and the Council. The executive board consists of fraternity members who are elected into their positions by the IFC Council. The Council consists of presidents and delegates from each chapter. Every Monday of the academic year the executive board and council convene for formal IFC meeting at 11 am via ZOOM.
During the fall quarter, the Interfraternity Council (IFC) fraternities recruit at the same time. During the winter quarter, most IFC fraternities will be holding recruitment events, and during the spring quarter, about half will be recruiting. Most of the IFC fraternities will be in the same area on ring road so that interested students will be able to easily visit all 15 fraternities. The IFC executive board usually holds an informational session for interested students to learn more about the benefits of Sorority & Fraternity Life and how to navigate the recruitment process.
Fraternities and sororities at UC Irvine are able to link to the UCI Sorority & Fraternity Life website. UC Irvine does not endorse or monitor individual chapter's websites for content. The ability to access individual chapter websites through UC Irvine's website is NOT an adoption by UC Irvine of any individual chapter's acts inconsistent with the policies of UCI.

Recognition of Fraternities & Sororities
The names of the fraternities & sororities listed on this page are the only chapters recognized at UC Irvine. There are honor societies and other professional organizations that use greek letters, but they are not recognized as a fraternity or sorority. Be aware of any group that says they are a fraternity or sorority but is not listed on this page or is not registered with the Student Life & Leadership Office. Unrecognized groups are also considered underground groups due to the fact that their activities are done in secret.
