Adding New Initiaties
Those students new to the organization and who are being inducted into the chapter will pay $25.00 their first year. Initiates will receive a membership certificate, pin, and the publications. The $25.00 fee is considered as initiation and first year dues.
To submit your annual roster, please fill out the form to the right. Make sure to include the chapter name (example: Delta Lambda) and a list of returning members for our records. All certificates and pledge pins for new members will be mailed to the faculty sponsor before the initiation ceremony, but please allow up to two weeks for the certificates to arrive.
To request honor cords, simply put the quantity needed on the last line of this form and press submit. The cords cost $10.00 each and will be mailed to the address listed on the form.
The fiscal year for Kappa Pi is from September 1 to May 31 of any year. Initiates in the fall will, of course, receive more benefits than those being initiated in the late spring. Initiations can be held at any time during the fiscal year, at the discretion of the university art department and chapter sponsors. Kappa Pi publications, The Sketch Pad in the fall and The Sketch Book in the spring, will be sent to all active members, initiates, alumni and associate members upon payment of annual dues. Faculty Sponsors, Honorary Members and Patrons receive complimentary copies of the publication each year.
