It is an expectation for each and every new member who joins the fraternity and sorority community at Illinois to complete and have on file in our office a New Member Rights & Grade Release Form. While our office has an expectation for each members to sign and date the "Guaranteed Rights of Members," we encourage chapter leaders to have member sign and date the Fraternity & Sorority Grade Release Form in order for our office to list each member's grades on the academic grade report.
