Members of the now de-chartered USC Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity will have by the end of the week to vacate the chapter's house on 28th Street, according to sources familiar with the situation.

The house's Greek letters had already been removed Wednesday evening, following the decision by SAE National headquarters late Tuesday to revoke the USC chapter's charter for three years.

The decision to close the California Gamma chapter comes after a string of incidents involving SAE at a local and national level. 

The chapter was placed on probation in October 2013 following an incident in which a Loyola Marymount University student sustained serious injuries after falling off a table during a party at the SAE fraternity house. 

SAE was also unable to accept a pledge class this semester, after the fraternity's national council decided in March to ban the pledging process nation-wide due the alcohol-related deaths of 10 members since 2006.
