Why Join an ACHS-certified Honor Society?

Alpha Kappa Delta became a certified member of the Association of College Honor Societies in 1967.

Membership in a certified, credible honor society provides prospective employers with instant verification of exemplary performance and achievement, distinguishing members from competing job applicants at a glance. In fact, the US Government’s Office of Personnel Management (OPM) offers incoming federal employees a two level pay grade increase for “Superior Academic Achievement” which can be obtained through membership in ACHS-certified honor societies.

Membership is also valuable because certified honor societies offer student members opportunities to network with high achieving professionals in their field; to hold leadership positions locally, regionally, and nationally; to win valuable scholarships, fellowships, and grants; to publish their research/work as an undergraduate or graduate student; to attend seminars, workshops, and conferences; to participate in campus and community programming that extends and enhances their academic experience; and more.

Check out the ACHS A Matter of Honor brochure for more information and learn more about ACHS and certified honor societies by visiting the ACHS website.
