The Interfraternity Council at the University of Pittsburgh plans this year to fine each fraternity $20 for every tenth of a point below 2.5 of each pledge's grade-point average, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. The goal of the new policy is to raise the average G.P.A. of fraternity members so that is it higher than that of all men at Pitt. Officials of the North American Interfraternity Conference said that they knew of many Greek organizations that set minimum G.P.A.s, but that they had not heard of a policy like the one at Pitt.
