Alpha Chi National Honor Society

Alpha Chi is a coed honor society started in 1922 to promote exemplary character and academic excellence among university students in all academic disciplines.

Alpha Chi is distinctive in that it involves members in all aspects of its operation: chapter officer leadership, student representation on the National Council, local chapter event planning, and presenting scholarly programs at regional and national conventions.

 • As an academic honor society, Alpha Chi admits students from all academic disciplines.

 • Membership limited to the top 10 percent of juniors and seniors at a university.

 • Invitation to membership comes only through an institutional chapter.

 • Some 300 chapters, located in almost every state and in Puerto Rico, induct more than 11,000 members annually.
