Greek life doesn’t have to break the bank

The Greek life experience is an investment in a student’s future. The leadership skills, academic support, and friendships will benefit a member beyond his or her days at Monmouth. Our organizations also provide alumni networks that help undergraduates find internships and jobs.  

Fraternities and sororities are for students from all kinds of financial backgrounds. Greek organizations at Monmouth are much more affordable than at larger institutions. Dues and fees are spent on services and programs that will support members and help them develop. We encourage all students interested in Greek life to ask about financial information prior to joining.

The cost of membership varies somewhat from organization to organization. Parents and students should be aware of the fees, dues and other expenses associated with joining a Greek organization and make the best decision for your student and family. Costs include: a new member fee, initiation fee, and annual dues. Chat with the organization you’re interested in to see what their dues are or reach out to us to talk. Most chapters have payment plan options, and many of our Greek alumni are willing to help undergraduates cover costs. Finances should never be the reason a student doesn’t join a fraternity or sorority.

Scholarships can help

Both of Monmouth’s Greek governing organizations, the Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council, offer scholarships to members in fraternities and sororities to help with membership dues. Some chapters also have scholarships offered by their national headquarters.
