Each social Greek organization charges dues and fees as part of joining and retaining membership.
Every organization has a different dues and fee structure based on their local chapter operations and their national dues and fees structure.
In general, dues pay for the following:
- Educational programs and leadership development provided by the national organization
- Local chapter operating budget for events including service and community building activities
One time new member fees may be charged to contirbute to the start up costs for onboarding a new member; this fee may include the purchase of a new member pin or other items.
Many organizations have programs to work with interested students who may not be able to afford the one time or ongoing costs associated with membership for those who qualify.
Stanford Greek organizations make every effort to keep dues and fees low.
