Eligibility Requirements

All undergraduate male students, who obtain at least a 2.8 cumulative grade point average after a minimum of 12 credit hours at Elon University and are in good standing with the University, are eligible to participate in fraternity recruitment.  *Winter Term 2016 grades do not count toward your cumulative grade point average for eligibility purposes.

2. All participants must complete the registration and pay the $30 registration fee online to be eligible to receive a bid.

Appeal to Participate

The Interfraternity Council’s eight fraternities have all made a commitment to scholarship and academics.  The Interfraternity Council has set a GPA minimum of 2.8 in order to participate in any recruitment activities.  Exceptions are granted in rare cases when there are extreme extenuating circumstances. However please be aware that the Office of Fraternity & Sorority life will still report the University-verified GPA, and granting an appeal does not guarantee an invitation to join a fraternity.

All appeals must be approved by the Interfraternity Council. Appeals may be emailed to fsl@elon.edu including the name, datatel number and reasoning of the student. No appeals will be granted after Wednesday, February 10.
