Joining a sorority requires a financial commitment. Here are some things you'll want to be aware of as you consider the financial commitment of sorority membership.

  • 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.
  • Sorority dues range from $650-$1100 the first semester and from $440-650 for future semesters.
  • 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.
  • Keep in mind that dues generally don't cover "extras" like 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
