Membership Responsibility - Financial 

Just like any membership organization or club, civic group and professional or trade association, membership dues are a part of ensuring the consistency and longevity of the experience provided to members. 

As a not-for-profit corporation, dues and fees are collected and reinvested to the direct benefit of the member. This is accomplished through the intentional and targeted programming provided to develop women of substance, character and influence.  

WHY DO I PAY NEW MEMBER AND INITIATION FEES?​

New member dues and initiation fees are paid by all new members of Phi Sigma Sigma and cover membership benefits provided by the international organization. Events held at the local level are funded by local chapter dues which are paid in addition to international new member dues and initiation fees. Learn more about our modified pay-as-you-go format during COVID-19. 

WHAT IS INCLUDED?

WELCOME BOX

After registering on the Phi Sigma Sigma website and paying your first installment, you will receive our fall 2020 welcome box via mail. The branded keepsake box will include numerous Phi Sig gifts, your official bid, new member pin & more! 

INITIATION CERTIFICATE & MEMBERSHIP CARD

Following initiation, you will receive your official initiation certificate and membership card. 

PHI SIGMA SIGMA BADGE

Your initiation fee covers your lifelong lease on your Phi Sigma Sigma badge, proudly worn by all Phi Sigma Sigma sisters. Your badge option is standardized based on your chapter's selected badge. 

ANNUAL FRATERNITY DUES

Fraternity dues are paid on an annual basis by all active members. As a new member, a portion of your new member dues covers your yearly contribution. Annual Fraternity dues cover yearly operating expenses and chapter services, including insurance coverage, technology services, chapter & member support services, chapter & member programming, member recognition and Fraternity operating expenses. 

PHI PROGRAM

As a new member you will participate in the Phi Program, Phi Sigma Sigma's new member education program. The Phi Program consists of online learning modules and facilitated discussions.

PAY-AS-YOU-GO PARTICIPATION
 Varies on Participation

Because of COVID-19, we will temporarily be switching to a "pay-as-you-go" format for chapter events, based on the activities you decide to participate in. 

RESPONSIBLE SPENDING

The chapter leadership will be encouraged to minimize costs and overhead due to the economic impact of COVID-19. However, there are ongoing operational expenses we anticipate members will pay such as composite, Panhellenic council dues, etc. Beyond that, members will maintain control of their financial commitments through the responsible authorization of charges to their account.

Frequently Asked  Questions

How do I make my payment?


You will make your payments on the Phi Sigma Sigma website. Once you've registered on the website you will find your invoice(s) under the My Profile menu tab. Click "Pay Open Invoices" in the top left corner window.




What will dues look like once I'm an initiated member?


Fraternity and local dues and fees are rolled into one all-inclusive amount and billed through Billhighway based on your selected payment schedule. Phi Sigma Sigma Fraternity dues and fees are a standard rate for all members and are collected each fall semester. Local dues depended on your chapter’s projected programming and your member status. Due to COVID-19, state, county and university restrictions will determine what programming can be held safely. Phi Sigma Sigma Fraternity dues and fees will continue to be the same for all members and are collected each fall semester. For the time being, Fraternity dues and fees and will be billed through the Phi Sigma Sigma website on your selected payment schedule. If you wish to participate in approved programming, you will pre-pay the authorized amount for the event on your Billhighway account to cover the cost of the event. If your chapter has campus-specific operational expenses (panhellenic dues, composites, recruitment, etc.) you may still pay those fees through Billhighway. Think of this as a shift from all-inclusive to pay-as-you-go fee distribution. It is our hope that this Fraternity dues and fees model goes a long way to help members who were financially impacted by COVID-19 to take control of their financial stability while maintaining their membership.




When will I receive my welcome box?


Welcome boxes will automatically ship once you pay your first installment. Boxes will be shipped to the address entered during new member registration.




When will I receive my badge, certificate and membership card?


Badges, certificates and membership cards will be ordered once you've paid both installments of your new member dues. Our badges are custom-made and take 6-8 weeks to produce. Your badge, certificate and membership card will be shipped directly to the address on file.




Can I make a payment over the phone?


New member and initiation fees should be paid on the Phi Sigma Sigma website. Please do not call Headquarters with payment, as we cannot process payment over the phone.
