Article 11 (Academics)


The current IFC GPA standard is: 2.75/4.00.


Members must complete an individually assigned amount of study hours every two weeks, as set by the Academic Committee. All submissions for academic points and/or study hours must be submitted by every other Sunday at noon when the academic plan is in effect. Failure to meet the required biweekly academic point requirement, without being excused by the director of academic affairs, will result in a fine of $2 per point not turned in.


Academic Probation


A person shall be placed on academic probation if their previous semester’s MST GPA falls below the standard written within bylaw 11.1, his course load for the previous semester falls below twelve graded credit hours, or he returns from absence with prior academic probation standing.


Should said member’s scholastic average not meet or exceed a 2.75 on a 4.0 scale during the next academic term, he shall be automatically suspended from membership. Petitions to waive the suspension may be made only to the Executive Board of the chapter which will take into account recommendations from the Director of Academic Affairs. After a term of academic suspension, should said member achieve a scholastic average that meets or exceeds a 2.75 on a 4.0 scale, his suspension for academics shall expire and he shall resume his previous membership status. Should said member fail to achieve a scholastic average that exceeds a 2.75 on a 4.0 scale for three consecutive academic terms, he shall be recommended for expulsion.
