Honor Societies

Hawai‘i Pacific University has 19 honor societies. Student records are reviewed on a regular basis, and those who qualify for membership in each honor society are invited to join. In most cases, reviews are conducted during both fall and spring semesters.

The table below lists HPU’s honor societies, their scope of membership, the qualifications for membership, dues, and the faculty advisor/sponsor for each honor society. Prospective members must possess good reputation and character, and those who have been reported for academic misconduct are ineligible for membership. Each honor society conducts various activities for its members throughout the year. Formal induction ceremonies for new members are generally conducted during the fall or spring term

Except for Chi Alpha Sigma, which inducts only during the spring semester, sponsors review currently-enrolled students each fall and spring semester and send out invitations to those who meet the stated membership criteria (which are listed on the page for each society). In most cases, invitations are sent to students’ official HPU (@my.hpu.edu) email addresses. Students who believe that they meet the requirements for a particular honor society and do not receive an invitation may contact the sponsor of that honor society directly.
