The Interfraternity Council has established minimum GPA eligibility requirements to join its member fraternities at a 2.5 cumulative GPA. If a student is in their first semester at William & Mary, it is assumed the student meets the minimum GPA requirement.
An 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 receiving 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 Tuesday, February 11th at noon. Petitioners will need to attend the IFC Conduct Board meeting that evening. The petitioner will be sent a confirmation email with details of the Conduct Board meeting. The petition form will be released in September.
