2. How much will it cost to reinstate/reactivate my membership?
You will need to pay: reinstatement fees and the Corporate Office Improvement Project (COIP) assessment, if applicable. Corporate assessments include Education Advancement Foundation (EAF) dues and the cost of the current Constitution and Bylaws and Manual of Standard Procedure. If you’re reactivating with a chapter, you will also need to pay dues and assessments (which vary by chapter).
3. What is a Transfer Verification Form?
It’s an official Sorority form which documents that a Soror has met all financial obligations to her former chapter and the Boule. Before transferring membership from one chapter to another, you must obtain clearance from the former chapter. Before transferring your status as a General Member to chapter member, you must obtain clearance from the Corporate Office. No chapter can accept a Soror into active membership before receiving the Transfer Verification Form.

4. How do I know or find out if I paid the COIP assessment?
If you were initiated after July 1992, the COIP assessment was included in your initiation fees. If you were initiated before July 1992 or were a Golden Soror as of July 31, 1993 and active after July 1, 1994, contact the Corporate Office (Attention: Membership) if you need to verify payment was made.
