Intercultural Greek Council (IGC)

IGC Membership Qualifications

Undergraduate students who wish to affiliate with IGC chapters must meet specific membership qualifications. These standards include academic achievement (2.5 – 3.0 GPA depending upon the organization), community service, and good character. Students who are on disciplinary probation are not eligible to participate in an intake process. 

All students wishing to seek membership in an IGC chapter must attend (1) Membership Intake Seminar offered by the Office of Greek Life before the appropriate deadline. Students must be present the entire duration of seminars in order to receive full credit. Any student that has not attended (1) Membership Intake Seminar by: September 30, 2020 (if wanting to pursue membership in the Fall) or January 31, 2021 (if wanting to pursue membership in the Spring) will not be allowed to join a Fraternity or Sorority for that respective semester.

Intake Seminars must be done again every (2) years if membership is not obtained within that time span. Intake seminars only are valid for two years from the semester it is completed. (ex. Intake seminar done in Fall 2017 will only be valid until the end of the Fall 2019.)

Each affiliate organization shall implement their internationally sanctioned membership intake process. To learn more about IGC organizations, interested students are encouraged to research their individual organization and chapter websites as well as attend various events hosted by IGC organizations on campus.

The IGC chapters on Vanderbilt’s campus have a diverse history and seek to continue the traditions of excellence and involvement with campus life. The earliest any person could pursue membership in a IGC organization would be the 2nd semester of their 1st year. Some organizations may require that you have more than 12 Vanderbilt credit hours. Please feel free to visit organizational websites and learn of their requirements or talk to a member of the Vanderbilt chapter.

IGC chapters will advertise their membership intake process through fliers labeled “Interest Meeting, Informational, Rush Tea or Meet N’ Greet”, which all students are welcome to attend to express interest in and learn more about an organization. These fliers will always be posted no less than a week before said meeting.
