Explanation of Cost

LEARNING FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IS A VALUABLE LIFE SKILL FOR OUR MEMBERS.


Learning about the costs of Alpha Chi Omega—whether paying membership fees or serving as a chapter leader and learning how to operate on a balanced chapter budget—is part of the learning experience.
 
The cost of Alpha Chi Omega can vary by chapter location and member. The costs of housing, meals, dues and programming are our greatest expenses and can vary by school. Outside of individual chapter fees are national dues and fees.
 
We understand paying for college is a huge expense. That’s why the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation offers scholarships and grants to a limited number of students. The availability and award amount of scholarships and grants vary by year, depending on the generosity of our donors and the performance of our investments. 

National dues and fees
Our members pay national dues and fees to support the activities and operations of our organization.

Collegiate chapter dues, fees and housing costs
Each chapter also establishes its own costs for housing and meals, dues and other fees. Chapter costs are determined by chapter members and are listed in the chapter’s bylaws, along with the time and method of payment.
