chapter average is based on both active and new members for a given semester. All grades are
based on semester grade point average.

When chapters do not achieve All Women/Men’s average the chapter would be

1st Semester - Limited Social Probation. This would consist of the chapter being able to only
host one social with alcohol (off campus party, house party, socials with other organizations,
date party, formal, semi-formal) and three socials without alcohol per semester. The chapter
would remain in Good Standing for National Reporting purposes. Chapter leadership and
advisors would have a required meeting with Greek Deans to review chapter plan of action and
to assess reasons for not meeting standards. The chapter must develop a 12 month strategic
academic plan to be given to the Greek Deans no later than the 2nd week of the following
academic term. The chapter must also schedule a program for the chapter membership that is
2nd Consecutive Semester - Loss of Social Activities. This advanced level of probation would
not allow the chapter to host or participate in any social events. The chapter would remain in
Good Standing for National Reporting purposes. Chapter leadership and advisors would have a
required meeting with Greek Deans to review chapter plan of action and to assess reasons for not
meeting standards. The chapter leadership will re-evaluate the strategic academic plan with the
3rd Consecutive Semester - This is a more advanced level of probation. This level would place
the chapter with a Not in Good Standing status for National Reporting purposes. This designation
would also be placed on all assessment tools regarding grades that are published by Office of
Greek Affairs. The chapter would not be allowed to participate in any UL Lafayette/Greek
sponsored activities such as: Homecoming, Greek Week, Greek Expo, Council socials, or be
eligible for Greek Awards. Chapter leadership and advisors would have a required meeting with
Greek Deans to review chapter plan of action and to assess reasons for not meeting standards.
The chapter leadership will re-evaluate and extend the strategic academic plan with the Greek
th Consecutive Semester - This is the most severe level of probation which would place the
chapter’s recognition by UL Lafayette in jeopardy. Upon reaching this level, the chapter will
schedule a formal meeting with the Office of Greek Affairs staff, chapter advisor, chapter
president, and chapter scholarship chairmen. A chapter must reach AMA/AWA for two
consecutive semesters to be removed from this probation.
