Alpha Sigma Lambda is not a sorority. Alpha Sigma Lambda (Epsilon Beta Chapter) is the national honor society that recognizes the special achievements of non-traditional students who accomplish academic excellence while facing competing interests of home and work.
To be inducted into Alpha Sigma Lambda, candidates must meet the following National Criteria:
- The candidate must be a matriculated student with a minimum of 24 semester hours, not including transfer credits
- At least 12 of the total credits should be earned in the Liberal Arts and Sciences
- The Candidate must have a minimum grade point average of 3.2
- Candidates will be selected from the highest ten percent of the class who meet the aforementioned requirements
The Alpha Sigma Lambda National Headquarters allows individual chapters to impose higher standards for membership.
Trinity’s Epsilon Beta Chapter selects its members from the top ten percent of the School of Professional Studies students. However, Epsilon Beta candidates must meet the following criteria established by Trinity:
- The candidate must be a Junior or Senior
- The candidate must have a minimum grade point average of 3.4
- The candidate must have completed a minimum of 30 graded semester hours
- We invite the top one percent of juniors and seniors to join
In the past few years, the grade point average of Epsilon Beta inductees falls in the range of 3.8-4.0 which is comparable to the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. This is a very special honor for SPS undergraduate students and we induct students every year.
