*ELI students cannot be “official” members of these organizations unless they are full-time matriculated UD student. That is, ELI students cannot be officers and cannot vote during organization elections for officers.

Organizations such as Sororities and Fraternities also require fees to be paid on top of the requirement of being a full-time student.

Though ELI students cannot be official members or become officers until they are matriculated, all ELI students are welcome to attend the meetings, events, and activities organized by UD student organizations!
