At a minimum, students must have earned 12 credit hours from W&L with a minimum GPA of 2.5 to be eligible to participate in a Formal Recruitment or Membership Intake Process. Please note that specific chapters may have additional eligibility requirements.

As a general rule, first-year students who are taking an incomplete grade(s) in their coursework may participate in a Formal Recruitment or Membership Intake Process with the express understanding that in order to continue with new member education and initiate into an organization:

  • The incomplete grade(s) must be resolved by the due date set by the instructor and no later than the end of the 15th class day (third week) of the term in which they are seeking membership.
  • Students will have earned 12 credit hours from W&L and a minimum GPA of 2.5 upon completion of the incomplete grade(s).

If a student fails to meet these requirements, the student must immediately discontinue all new member activities and cannot be initiated into the organization. Should a student be granted an extension to carry an incomplete beyond the 15th class day of the term in which they are seeking membership, they should expect to hear from their class dean to discuss. Similarly, the organization of which they are seeking membership will be notified by the appropriate Greek life adviser.
