*A chapter may raise eligibility standards, as long as they are in accordance with the Society’s Constitution.
That’s it! Once you’re eligible, you’ll receive an invitation to join the chapter at the college where you’re presently enrolled. If you think you may be eligible for membership but haven’t received an invitation, talk with the advisor of your college’s chapter (typically a faculty or staff member). Find your local advisor.
