This year prior to primary recruitment, the Panhellenic Council has created a guide to improve the transparency of member finances. This is in an effort to create greater transparency about the costs associated with Panhellenic life. This quick guide lists projected costs for the upcoming academic year. Because the costs listed are only projected costs, it is the responsibility of each member to know their financial obligations and inquire when pursuing membership in an organization.


The quick guide lists the cost of first year membership, which is typically higher because of one-time fees, the average cost to live in the facility, the average cost to live-out of the facility, and chapter house capacity, if applicable. Chapters have also provided the different payment methods that are accepted and the typical payment plans used. If you have any questions regarding the terminology or information on this page, feel free to contact us at or through the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.

UMN Panhellenic Semesterly Chapter Fees 2020-2021

Blank fields indicate a chapter does not offer a live-in option. For more information, please refer to the chapter profiles and additional financial transparency below. 
* Please note these totals are subject to change on chapter-to-chapter basis after 2020. Typically, first semester New Member Fees are a little more expensive to account for the New Member experience and Initiation costs! They will decrease after the first semester.

The chapters with asterisk (*) next to their names have provided updated dues for the Fall 2020 semester. These chapters have lowered dues for the 2020 Fall semester due to changes in programming because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Chapters are in the process of submitting these changes, we encourage potential new members to ask about the Fall 2020 dues reduction during recruitment rounds!
