Your membership in Delta Phi Epsilon has come about through a process of mutual selection. It is with great pride that a young woman takes her vow and is initiated into the lifetime of sisterhood of Delta Phi Epsilon. Membership in our sisterhood is a privilege that comes with longstanding traditions, timeless values, and individual responsibilities, and commitment to the organization.
-Expectations of Membership of Delta Phi Epsilon
Both sisters and new members of Delta Phi Epsilon are held to a series of standards, and from that was born our Pearl Program. A few important expectations are outlined below.
Scholarship achievement is encouraged within the sisterhood, as each member is required to hold a 2.5 GPA. Sisters on the Leadership Team, president and vice presidents, are required to have a 2.75 GPA. We require that a potential new member hold a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher. This is not only a requirement of our local chapter and international office, but also one of the College Panhellenic Council.
New members have many resources to help them maintain their GPA. Our Vice President of Academic Affairs sets up study hours as needed. Also, sisters are always ready to help an encourage each other. Through our guardian angel program, we assign each new member a sister that is in a similar major. She assists them with classes during their education process and for the remainder of their time at RIT.
If you have any questions or concerns about our academic policy, please contact our Vice President of Academic Affairs, Danielle Howe.
Delta Phi Epsilon was honored to receive a freestanding house on Greek Circle. It is National Policy that sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon must live in the house until it meets capacity. If not enough sisters volunteer to live in the house, they will be asked to move in.

Upon becoming a sister, dues range from $160 - $200 per quarter. Dues are used to pay fees to the International Office as well as to allow for a budget for activities within our chapter. Forty percent of this amount is due at the first weekly meeting of each quarter.
