Organizational Costs

Frequently Asked Questions

What are dues?

Fraternities and Sororities require dues to be paid by all members. Dues are the amount of money that a member will pay each semester to the chapter to cover operational costs. Dues may vary for each chapter.

What expenses are covered in dues?

In general, all chapter dues cover the various fees paid to the chapter’s inter/national organization, UNG councils, and funds used for the chapter to operate. Below is more information about what these funds typically support:

  1. The inter/national organization dues help cover educational supplies, insurance and other fees to support the chapter.
  2. UNG council dues help support the governing councils: Panhellenic Association and Interfraternity Council. This money is utilized to pay for services and programming that the councils provide to the UNG community and the fraternity/sorority members (ie. Greek-A-Palooza, Greek Week, FSL Leadership Retreat, New Member 101, FSL Annual Awards Banquet, etc.).
  3. Chapter dues help cover the costs for brotherhood/sisterhood retreats, social events, philanthropy and service events, alumni and family events, and any programming a chapter hosts. It could also include items like t-shirts, new member pins, badges, etc.

When are dues charged?

This may vary by chapter. Some chapters will charge dues once per semester, while others might charge them on a monthly basis. Chapters also have the option of offering payment plans for members who need it.

How much does it cost to go through Recruitment?

Recruitment registration fees vary for IFC Fraternity Recruitment and Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment. 

  • IFC Recruitment registration is typically between $10 - $15.
  • Panhellenic Sorority recruitment is typically between $45 - $65.

How much does it cost to join a fraternity/sorority?

New member dues are usually higher than those of members who are already initiated, because they include one-time new member fees such as the inter/national organizations’ initiation fees, costs for educational materials, new member pins/badges, etc.

Once you are initiated, your dues will likely decrease because the chapter has already paid your new member fees. In an effort to make sure you understand the financial requirements of your first semester and beyond, we have broken down the dues information for new members as well as initiated members. All chapters should also have detailed financial information sheets upon request.
