Initiation Dues and Fees
Sword and Serpent, as a chartered Oasis, performs initiations in the Man of Earth degrees from Minerval through III°. Individual candidates are responsible for securing sponsors and submitting paperwork for the initiation application along with payment for the initiation. Ordo Templi Orientis is a dues collecting organization and each degree requires payment of initiation dues and fees. The fees for initiation at Sword and Serpent are as follows:
Any member seeking to initiate at Sword and Serpent, or any other body, must be dues current with USGL; if they are not dues current with USGL, they must become dues current prior to initiation (see “USGL Dues” below).
In addition, members of I° and above who are either affiliated with Sword and Serpent, or currently unaffiliated and local to Sword and Serpent, must be local dues current with Sword and Serpent in order to take initiation with Sword and Serpent. Members affiliated with other local bodies may initiate at Sword and Serpent if they are dues current with USGL. These same requirements also apply for those wishing to perform as Initiators or Officers at initiations conducted at Sword and Serpent.
Payment for initiation must be completed prior to the initiation taking place, or the initiation will not be performed; there are no exceptions to this rule. Payment for initiation can be made up to and including the date of initiation, though additional time is required for payment by check (see “Payment Methods” below).
