Frequently Asked Questions

If this page does not answer your questions regarding our organization, Greek life, or any other general inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us via our Contact page. A member of our national team will respond as soon as possible. 

what is a greek organization?

A Greek organization is a group of individuals with similar interests that are bonded together by common goals and aspirations. It is referred to as a Greek organization because the name of the organization consists of Greek letters. 

How much does it cost?

Both the chapter (on the local level) and the national office collect dues and membership fees from every member. Most groups have a one-time new member and initiation fee plus reoccurring dues on a semester-by-semester basis. The majority of the dues collected is used to pay for national insurance, while the remainder is to cover operating expenses. 

Do Greek Organizations take up a lot of time? 

Fraternity/sorority membership requires anywhere from 2 to 9 hours a week of commitment. Whether the time is spent participating in community service projects, planning events, or attending regular weekly meetings, members will learn to manage their time wisely - especially if they are involved with other commitments. Many of our members are students who have made their respective Dean's lists/honor rolls, work multiple jobs/internships, and balance time to be with other friends. We believe these skills are sharpened through membership in our organization and have positively impacted our members' lives beyond their undergraduate careers. 

How will joining Sigma Psi Zeta Affect my GPA? 

We make academic success a priority for our members. We monitor GPAs both nationally and locally to ensure that members focus on their main goal of pursuing higher education: to learn. We have many members that consistently make their university's Dean's lists/honor rolls and whom also obtain their highest GPAs as members of Sigma Psi Zeta.


No. Sigma Psi Zeta has a strict non-hazing policy and hazing would also be in violation of many university policies. Our organization's national philanthropy is to combat violence against women and hazing would directly contradict this effort.
