No matter what you are looking for, there is a fraternity at William & Mary for you. Joining an IFC fraternity is fun, simple, and easy. IFC fraternities hold a structured recruitment at the beginning of each semester. However, IFC fraternities may extend bids for membership anytime during each semester.
Given current COVID-19 complications, IFC fall 2020 fraternity recruitment will be mostly held virtually through social media interactions, Zoom meetings, and other digital activity. In-person recruitment events and gatherings are still possible, but they must strictly abide by all W&M and Virginia COVID-19 guidelines. Specifically, no more than 3 people may participate in an in-person recruitment event at one time. Effectively, this means that in-person recruitment events will be rare, and can only occur after August 28th per the school’s moratorium. Each chapter will approach recruitment differently, so your best bet is to reach out to each fraternity and ask how best to meet chapter members. Below are the main dates for fall 2020 recruitment. However, each chapter will be holding different events, so be sure to ask for specific event dates and details.

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.
