Read the bylaws and complete THIS NHS Bylaws Acknowledgement Form.
Our chapter requires that a student achieve and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above. All juniors and seniors who have the initial scholarship requirements are eligible to provide student activity information for membership consideration. The form allows students to provide evidence of the additional cornerstones of membership-- leadership, service and character.
Student Activity Information forms must be completed in full for consideration. Forms are evaluated by a five-member faculty committee. The student is identified only by an assigned number, without his/her name appearing on the form. This is to guarantee an impartial evaluation. Each committee member assigns a point value to the criteria of membership:
Students who receive 60% of the 45 total possible points (27) are extended invitations to join NHS.
All students who receive membership in NHS must maintain the academic standard (3.5), earn 10 service hours per semester (8 individual /2 NHS group activities), and attend monthly club meetings.
