Costs

There are additional financial responsibilities with joining a sorority or fraternity. Cost for membership varies between each organization. Costs, typically assessed each semester, are paid directly to the organization and allocated across inter/national, regional, and local financial assessments. There may additional costs outside of the standard annual dues. The dues are specific to the chapter at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and can also change on a semester/annual basis.

Factors such as size, fees to the inter/national office, state/regional conferences, new member or initiation fees, housing and/or meal plan requirements (if applicable), etc. all impact the amount a member will be responsible for. Scholarships may be available within the individual organization. Below are estimated ranges for dues for chapters within each council.
