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.

Congratulations! You earned membership in National Honor Society! That means you’re part of a prestigious legacy—and ready to access all the benefits that membership bestows. Here are just some of the ways you can experience NHS to the fullest:

The pillars of the National Honor Societies are not limited to student members alone. National recognition programs like the National Honor Society strive to place a much-needed emphasis and spotlight on whole-person growth.

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.
