Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will members be assessed the same rate for annual dues, liability insurance, new member fees and initiation fees?

A: Below is a breakdown of the financial dues and fees for the upcoming year:
  • Annual Dues and Initiation Fees:
    • Annual dues are $145
    • Initiation fees are $265
  • Liability Insurance:
    • Chapters and colonies can pay liability insurance utilizing four installments throughout the year (November 1, December 1, February 1 and March 1) with a 1% per month finance charge and this installment plan will continue to be an option.
    • The amount per-member rate for liability insurance will be determined once chapters update their rosters on Vault.

Q: How will new members who pledged during the fall 2020 semester, but were not initiated until after August 1 be assessed annual dues?

A:These men will be assessed the $265 initiation dues which includes their annual dues for the year. For accounting purposes, if the chapter submits the initiation report prior to receiving its fall annual dues assessment, these men will be included on the fall annual dues invoice the chapter receives. However, the chapter’s account will be issued a credit to reflect the annual dues already included in the initiation dues for these men.

Q: Can chapters or colonies with greater financial issues be set up on payment plans for annual dues and liability insurance?

A: There are two options for liability insurance and annual dues:

  • Liability Insurance:
    • Chapters and colonies have the ability to pay liability insurance utilizing four installments throughout the year (November 1, December 1, February 1 and March 1) plus a 1% per month finance charge.
  • Annual Dues:
    • If a chapter is unable to pay its annual dues in the standard timeline it can work with the Central Office to develop a Financial Action Plan Agreement (FAPA). While this would not reduce the amount each member pays, it would allow for the chapter to extend its payment period. In this scenario, if a chapter is unable to pay its annual dues by the payment deadline, sets up a FAPA and meets the terms outlined, the 10 percent late fee should be waived. 

Q: What is the expectation for the adoption of the OmegaFi system?

A: A: The relationship with OmegaFi is a long-term strategic partnership the Fraternity values and intends on maintaining. However, the July 31, 2021 deadline for chapters to adopt and integrate the OmegaFi system has been postponed. Utilizing the OmegaFi system will be proposed as a new accreditation item starting on January 1, 2021. 

Q: How can we ensure we are assessed fees for the correct number of members?

A: Chapter and colony leadership should make sure its roster is accurate on Vault. Chapters have the ability to change a new member’s status to initiate and an initiate’s status to alumni. If a member’s status has changed to suspended, expelled or withdrawal the chapter should submit the corresponding paperwork to kathy.sargent@delts.org. This paperwork can be found in the resource center on myDelt.

  • Chapters and colonies with classes starting on or before August 31 should submit any updates and paperwork for member status changes by September 15.
  • Chapters and colonies with classes starting on or after September 1 should submit any updates and paperwork for member status changes by October 10.
