Does membership cost a lot of money?

Each chapter is self-supported through dues charged to all members. In the first year of membership, a few one-time expenses are assessed. First semester costs run a little higher, but will typically go down the following semester. Dues for African- American and Latino/Latina fraternities and sororities have a higher first-semester cost but reduce substantially and vary from organization to organization. In addition, chapters have payment plans that can be arranged.
