Join Alpha Lambda Delta
Requirements for Membership
- Your Eligibility Year is your first semester as a new college student.
- During your first semester as a new college student, you must be enrolled as a full-time student pursuing a baccalaureate (Bachelor’s) degree in either the Liberty University Resident Program or the Liberty University Online Program.
- You must have a 3.5 or higher career GPA (on a 4.0 scale) at the end of your first semester as a brand new college student.
- You must have no repeats, no incompletes, and no failures.
You should receive an email letter of invitation to join from our chapter via the National Alpha Lambda Delta MyHonorSociety during the 2nd or 3rd week in February with instructions of how to accept your invitation to join online.
If you feel you meet the requirements and have not received an invitation to join by the end of February, contact our Faculty Advisor David Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a one-time (lifetime) membership fee currently set at $45.00 ($25.00 are for national dues, and $20.00 are for local chapter dues). You will never have to pay anything more to maintain your membership status: “Once a member, always a member.”
You will receive only one invitation with a deadline date to join. Once that deadline date has passed, you will not have further opportunity to join.
Initiation Ceremony and Reception
The initiation is a ceremony which inducts you into the National and Local Alpha Lambda Delta. You will be notified of the initiation date and location in your letter of invitation to join. National Alpha Lambda Delta refers to this ceremony as an initiation.
You will be presented your Alpha Lambda Delta initiate’s key and your certificate. You may invite family members and friends to the ceremony.
Alpha Lambda Delta Officers
Your online invitation to join will also include a list of questions concerning becoming an Alpha Lambda Delta officer. Just complete the form and our Faculty Advisor will email you of when and where to meet to discuss the officer positions.
Installation of Officers is a part of our Initiation Ceremony. Officers commit to serving for one year which fulfills your CSER for that year.
Eligibility Requirements for LUO Students
Liberty University Online students who meet the requirements noted above may join Alpha Lambda Delta. If you are eligible to join, you will receive an email invitation to join letter. We realize that you will not be able to attend the meetings and participate in activities here on campus. Our Administrative Advisor will always advise you of our activities and ask you to feel free to participate in those in which you are able.
You will be invited to participate in the Initiation Ceremony and Reception but it is not mandatory for you to attend. If you are here in the area and can participate, we encourage you to attend. If you are unable to attend, our Alpha Lambda Delta Administrative Advisor will mail your certificate and initiation key to you.
