Fraternity Requirements – Financial, Time, and Academic

Fraternity Basics

The academic responsibilities, financial obligations, and time requirements are an important factor in your decision to join a fraternity. If you have questions, please ask a current chapter member.  If your parents or guardians are responsible for your support, be sure to discuss all relevant costs and time requirements with them before you decide to join.

Cost to participate in Fraternity Recruitment

Participation in Fraternity Recruitment is free.

Fraternity Life Financial Obligations

Joining a fraternity, while not without additional expense can be an affordable option for everyone. Payment plans are always an option within individual chapters, and most fraternity members balance their school and activity load with a part time job. Investing in a fraternity will be one of the best decisions you will ever make; the friendships and memories you make within your chapter will be remembered long after you write your check for dues.

The cost for each fraternity is different; you should carefully go through all of the different fraternities requirements before weighing your options.
