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.
