Former Chapters[edit]

The Delta Gamma chapter at the State University of New York at Oneonta, founded in 1985, disaffiliated with the National office in 1995 after recognized fraternities were no longer allowed to give bids to first semester freshmen.

The Delta Nu chapter was founded at Western Michigan University (WMU). ΣΑΜ began there as a colony in 1989, and was fully admitted as a chapter in 1992. The fraternity shut down in 1999 due to hazing. (The updated date and notation why is from the pledge who turned them in)

The Sigma Omega chapter at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC dissolved in June 2007 after a fire at the chapter house in 2005.

The Sigma Phi chapter at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania was suspended due to lack of pledges in 2008.

The Chi chapter, founded in 1919 at Montreal's McGill University, was ordered to shut down in 2008 after refusing to pay for the National insurance policy because of its failure to comply with Canadian law. The Chi Chapter continued to operate as "an independent chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu in Quebec." The Chi chapter's "loyalist policy" indicates that it still recognizes all other active chapters and alumni including those initiated into the Delta Pi chapter in Ottawa, Ontario. Chi Chapter is the oldest chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu to be established outside of the United States. As the oldest Canadian chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu, the chartering of Chi chapter on November 25, 1919 made Sigma Alpha Mu an international fraternity for the first time in its history.

The Xi chapter at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology disaffiliated from the national fraternity and is now a co-ed Independent Living Group known as Fenway House.[1]

The Delta Iota chapter at the State University of New York College at Brockport disaffiliated from the national fraternity.

The Gamma Sigma chapter at Binghamton University had its charter revoked in 2001. The Delta Delta chapter at Alfred University in Alfred, NY was dissolved in 2002 when the university disallowed Greek letter organizations on campus.

Canadian Chapters[edit]

The National office forced all four Canadian chapters to cease operations or disaffiliate from the fraternity from August 2006 to August 2008. Delta Pi Chapter at the University of Ottawa informed the Octagon that the American insurance provider failed to comply with Canadian law in 2005. They requested permission to secure an alternative and equivalent Canadian provider. Their request was denied in August 2006 and their Charter was revoked. Delta Omicron at York University and Delta at the University of Western Ontario were forced to shut down in 2007 due to impecuniosity, which was a direct consequence of the National insurance policy. In 2008 Chi at McGill University was the only surviving Canadian Chapter. It demanded that the National office allow Delta Pi's 2005 appeal and establish a Canadian insurance alternative pursuant thereto. It further demanded that the National office act to quash the Octagon's 2006 expulsion order issued against Delta Pi. The National office offered to consider the former but rejected the latter out of hand. Chi responded by ceasing all financial transfers to Indianapolis. The National office subsequently ordered Chi Chapter to cease operations in August 2008. However, Chi refused to comply and has continued to operate notwithstanding the order. In 2012, Delta Pi Chapter was reinstated and is once again active at the University of Ottawa.
