Fraternity and Sorority Membership
There is a financial commitment associated with joining a fraternity or sorority. The costs go toward inter/national fees, chapter operating expenses, and social functions. Financial obligations differ for men and women and among individual chapters. New members can expect to pay higher dues their first semester. Many chapters participate in the Facility Management Program, and members pay $322 each semester, charged to their student account, for the maintenance and upkeep of the chapter house. Dues range from $750 to $1,500 for Interfraternity Council (IFC) and Panhellenic women. Initiation fees for National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) and Intercultural Greek Council (IGC) chapters range from $500 to $1,500 and continuing dues range from $100 to $500 each year. Additional costs throughout the semester may be for meal plans, conference attendance, philanthropic contributions, pictures, gifts, parties, T-shirts, etc. Chapter fees are paid directly to the fraternity or sorority. There are payment plans available to students, as well as scholarships within the individual chapters.
