Excited to learn about membership in the National Honor Society? We don’t blame you! Much more than an honor roll, NHS is a distinctive multifaceted learning experience that provides a solid and meaningful foundation for life.
First, you will need to learn if your school has an NHS chapter. If so, check your student handbook or speak with someone in your main office to identify the chapter adviser. This is a faculty member who will be able to tell you the cumulative GPA required for consideration and a timeline when students who meet this benchmark will be invited to submit information about themselves to be considered for membership.
Moving to a new school? NHS membership is transferrable from one active NHS chapter to another. Simply get a letter from your current school’s principal or adviser verifying membership. Be sure you notify your new school of your NHS membership within 30 days of enrollment.
Student members of NHS are encouraged to create their very own student account. Upon doing so, they will be able to have their member status verified by their adviser, and receive the most up-to-date information about our programs and activities delivered straight to their inbox.
