Cost of Membership

Organizational Dues

Greek organizations are self-sufficient and do not receive funding from the University. Chapters are encouraged to be transparent about financial obligations and educate members, as well as potential new members, on how semester dues and fees are allocated, which may include:

  • National headquarters and insurance fees
  • Initiation and badge fees (for new members)
  • Chapter’s operating budget to support membership education, philanthropy planning, and recruitment

Cost of membership varies by organization and may include different items. Some chapters require a flat fee, while others may have a lower initial cost, but the cost for additional items is out of pocket. Chapters offer payment plans so payments can be paid over the course of the semester. 

Room and Board Costs

Most chapters maintain a University owned facility or house. Members of a chapter who reside in the chapter house pay room and board fees to the University, similar to other residential students. 

The cost of living in a fraternity or sorority house is comparable to non-Greek housing rates and outlined on the Room & Board page.


The University has no responsibility or oversight regarding financial matters outside of what is directly billed from the University for the room and board rate.  Contact chapters directly regarding specific dues or billing questions.
