Create a Member Account Instructions (You have 2 Options for Setting Up)

Please understand that your Landlord is Theta Chi Realty Corp ("Realty Corp"), Alpha Iota Chapter Members and the Alpha Iota Alumni Association all contract to use a bill payment company known as OmegaFi for leases, members dues and alumni dues. They are officed out of Columbus, Georgia and have no affiliation with Theta Chi other than to process our payments, store and provide a way to electronically sign leases and provide a bill payment system. All three groups, The Members, Theta Chi Realty Corp and Alpha Iota Alumni, use OmegaFi  for these online activities which has made it easy to communicate with the Members, Alumni and Realty Corp for each of their perspective functions.  With that said, below is how you need to login to your Realty Corp OmegaFi site when the leases are published for the Members to create their Realty Corp Account and the Members and their Parent/Guardian are to electronically sign them through our OmegaFi account.

[Please be aware that payments for the Realty Corp that are made accidentally to your OmegaFi Member's account will not transfer or be paid for your Security Deposit or Room and Board payments and will make you in default on your lease which could have you removed from the house for non-payment of rent to the Realty Corp. It has happened to your brothers and this notice is to help you understand how to pay to the Realty Corp account and how important it is to follow directions here]

OPTION 1: Within 24 hours of publishing a Member's (also referred to as Student) housing lease with Theta Chi Housing Corporation ("Realty Corp") the Student will receive an email from OmegaFi prompting them to respond to the email to log in to the Realty Corp OmegaFi site and create a new account. Again, our OmegaFi site Login is different from your Member OmegaFi Login for your chapter dues. This OmegaFi Realty Corp login must be different than your Member's OmegaFi Account login or you will have troubles accessing your lease with the Realty Corp to electronically sign and for future Room and Board payments. Please remember/save your Realty Corp OmegaFi username and login password for future use.

Hopefully the Member sees their email invite from OmegaFi because this is the best Option for Creating your Realty Corp OmegaFi Account. Once you are in the site do the following:

A. Sign in with a new user name and password then,

B. You will see where you have a contract waiting to sign and electronically sign the lease. Once you have filled in your information, checked the boxes and electronically signed it will ask you to forward to your parent/guardian for their information and guarantor signature then, 

C. Have Parent/Guarantor electronically sign in and execute the lease to have it be completed for the Realty Corp

D. The Realty Corp will get notice you have fully executed your Room and Board Lease. The Realty Corp will notify OmegaFi to post your $800 Security Deposit which is due upon the lease signing on your Realty Corp OmegaFi account. We will shortly thereafter have OmegaFi post your upcoming Room and Board payment due. It may take a few days to get posted on your account so please keep checking for payments due. There are penalties for late payment of both the Room Security Deposit and for the Room and Board payments if not paid when due.

OPTION 2: Contact OmegaFi at 800-276-6342 for help instruction to log into your Realty Corp Account for the lease signing and payments. 

[Again if Option 1 is not successful please go to Option 2]

 

The Student can invite their Parents to access their Realty Corp OmegaFi Account for Room and Board Payments.

Once logged in, you’ll see your dashboard. From here, you will click “Invite Your Parents.” This will allow parents to

create a username and password in order to view the member’s account.

Once your parent or guardian has received the account linking email, they will accept the invitation. If they have not set up a username for your chapter account, they will select option 1- “Create a New OmegaFi Login. (They will need your member account number). If they already have a username and password for your chapter account, they will select Option 2. Once signed in, they’ll enter the housing corporation account number.
