Academic Requirements

The Interfraternity Council has established minimum GPA eligibility requirements to join its member fraternities.  If a student is a member of the class of 2016, 2017, or 2018; the minimum GPA requirement is a 2.0 cumulative GPA established at William & Mary.  If a student is a member of the class of 2019 or later; the minimum GPA requirement is a 2.25 cumulative GPA established at William & Mary.  However, if a student is entering their first semester at William & Mary (i.e. freshman or transfer student) the student is assumed to meet this requirement.

Each IFC Fraternity may have minimum GPA requirements above the eligibility requirements established by the Interfraternity Council. Each potential new member should ask about individual chapter GPA requirements during recruitment.

If a student does not meet IFC established GPA requirements, the student may petition the IFC Conduct Board for an exemption. A student must be recieveing a bid for membership from an IFC Fraternity to petition. Petitions may not be submitted until a chapter has indicated they are willing to sponsor a student petition. Petitions for men seeking to join a fraternity this semester will be due by Monday, February 13th at 5:00 p.m. in the Interfraternity Council office, Campus Center Student Organizations Suite.  Petitioners will need to attend the IFC Conduct Board meeting that week.  The petitioner will be sent an email with the date, time, and location of the Conduct Board meeting.  IFC GPA Petition (pdf)
