Candidate Fee - $125 per man

All candidates must pay this non-refundable fee, which is due within 15 days of bid acceptance. Officers must register each candidate using the TKE Chapter Module. Each candidate will receive a validation email to complete their registration process and pay their fees via MyTKE.org. After 15 days, the chapter or emerging chapter becomes responsible for the Candidate Fee even if the candidate drops out before initiation. Chapter officers should use the TKE Chapter Module to monitor which candidates have paid their fee to the Offices of the Grand Chapter.

Initiation Fee - $200 per man ($325 total with Candidate Fee) OR One-time Initiation Fee Option - $800 per man ($925 total with Candidate Fee)

Prior to initiation, each candidate must pay an Initiation Fee, which should be done using MyTKE.org. Initiates who pay the One-time Initiation Fee Option will not have to pay Annual Membership Fees for the rest of their collegiate careers. If the Initiation Fee is not received within 15 days of initiation, a penalty equal to 40% of the Initiation Fee ($80) will be added to your chapter statement. 

Annual Membership Fees - $205 per man for the year OR $118 per man each semester

The best option is to pay your AMF in full for the year, due by October 1. The chapter or emerging chapter will save $31 per man by paying the full year incentive rate. If choosing the base rate/split option, the first installment of $118 per man is due October 1, and the second installment of $118 per man is due no later than March 1. All returning active members of TKE chapters and emerging chapters are obligated to pay this fee.

Graduate students have the option to be active members of a TKE chapter or emerging chapter. Any graduate student wishing to be an active member must pay Annual Membership Fees. Graduate students include all students who have received a bachelor's degree but are still taking classes at a college or university.

Risk Management Fee - See Risk Fee Calculation

The Risk Management Fee is assessed once a year based on the roster submitted by the chapter leadership. If the fee is paid in full by the early-bird deadline of October 1st, the chapter will receive a 10% credit on the statement which can be used toward future invoices. If the fee is not paid in full by the early bird deadline, the chapter must pay at least half (50%) of the total invoice by October 15th. Once half of the invoice is paid, the remaining amount owed will be due in full by March 15th.

Chapter Assessment Fee - $500 single payment; OR 2 payments of $390 (Total of: $780) per Chapter

The Chapter Assessment Fee is an annual fee each chapter pays to sustain dependable access to chapter services and resources. This includes virtual tools at edu.tke.org, as well as regional representatives to support every chapter in TKE. Payment is due in two equal installments of $390, one due October 31 and the second due March 31, OR a single payment of $500. If selected, the incentive rate of $500 is due October 31.
