Yes, according to the National Panhellenic Council regulations, you must be a full time student to participate in recruitment.

2. Does it cost the same to join each organization?

No, each organizations' dues vary in amount. The initial semester of joining can cost from $500 - $760, with most organizations not costing more than $1,000 for the entire year.
