New Member fees

In general, the initial new member semester is the most expensive due to some one-time fees. After initiation into the sorority, the dues are reduced for the following semesters. The new member fees vary by chapter adn range from $670 to $1,940

Sorority Dues

Dues cover different expenses depending on the organization. It may be important for you to know if certain expenses are covered, such as your sorority badge, t-shirts, etc so ask about it during recruitment! Dues vary by chapter and range from $440 to $820 per semester.

Extras

Keep in mind that dues generally don't cover "extras". Examples are tote bags, sunglasses, t-shirts, and any of the many products you can purchase with your letter on it. While it's possible you may receive some as gifts, if it's important to you to stock up on sorority swag, you'll want to consider that as you budget. 

Payment Plans

Since sorority membership is a financial decision, it's okay to ask about payment options. Most chapters offer some type of payment plan so you don't necessarily have to pay your dues all at once.

Scholarships

Some sororities may offer scholarships or financial assistance with dues. However, those opportunities are more likely to be offered to initiated members, so it's still important to plan for the immediate future. Also, financial assistance will likely be available to members who uphold the academic and social standards of the organization. It's yet another reason to keep your grades up and be responsible!
