Two fraternities have been suspended from the University of Virginia for at least two years.

The fraternities were notified on Thursday.

The University reports that it has terminated agreements with Sigma Nu and Pi Kappa Alpha effective immediately, citing "an investigation of allegations of misconduct involving the new member education process."

Current residents will be allowed to stay in the home for now.

A University statement indicates that the decision to terminate any agreement with the fraternities was "not one that the University arrived at quickly."

The fraternities will not be allowed to apply for re-instatement until 2016.

Pi Kappa Alpha's national organization has already suspended the charter for a local chapter.

Sigma Nu faces a hearing with its national organization on April 28th.
