Theta Delta Sigma, like any organization, requires financial resources to operate. By assessing dues and fees, each individual enables Theta Delta Sigma Society to exist and to provide programs, resources, and services for its chapters and members. Theta Delta Sigma takes great pride in being financially acessible to almost everyone who is willing to devote the effort and energy needed for membership. We strive to keep our national dues and fees low -- much lower than most fraternities and sororities. Local dues are set by each chapter and vary depending on the specific needs of the group.

New Member Fee
The New Member Fee is a one-time (non-refundable) fee. Upon accepting an invitation to membership, each new member is expected to pay a new member fee. This covers the costs of the talisman and other resources provided to the chapter for new member orientation. Additionally, indiviudals will receive the standard new member package which includes a membership badge, membership certificate, t-shirt, and other things.
National Per Capita Dues
National Per Capita Dues (national dues) are paid each semester by February 15th and October 1st. National dues are non-refundable and are used to fund the general operations of Theta Delta Sigma Society, Inc. including, but not limited to, national programs, chapter support, general liability insurance coverage, and member services.
Chapter Dues are determined by each chapter. Chapter dues are used to fund the general operations of the chapter in which they are paid. In addition to the operating costs, chapter dues will also cover chapter activities such as service and social events, recruitment tools, travel, etc. Using chapter dues to fund the purchase of alcohol is expressly prohibited.
