Membership Requirements

The requirements for membership in Alpha Lambda Delta are as follows:

  • You must have a 3.5 or higher Grade Point Average (on a 4.0-point scale), or the equivalent, and you must be in the top 20% of your class during your first term or your first year of study at an institution of higher education.  (Most chapters evaluate students after their first term, some chapters evaluate after the first year.  To find out which method your chapter uses, contact your chapter advisor.)
  • You must be enrolled as a full-time student pursuing a baccalaureate (Bachelor's) degree at an accredited institution with an active Alpha Lambda Delta chapter on campus.
  • Freshman transfer students from institutions that do not have an Alpha Lambda Delta chapter, to be eligible for membership, must have the required Alpha Lambda Delta grade point average on the courses taken during the first full curricular period in the institution to which they transfer.  In addition, the cumulative average of the grades of the student's transfer credits combined with the grades in the institution in which the student is currently enrolled must equal the Alpha Lambda Delta academic grade requirement.

If you meet the above requirements, you should receive an invitation from your chapter.  If you meet the above requirements and have not received an invitation to join Alpha Lambda Delta, contact your chapter advisor.
