IMPACT YOUR COMMUNITY

How can you tell if your honor society is legitimate?

Successful scholars receive invitations from many organizations claiming to be prestigious honor societies. But how can you tell which ones are legitimately helpful to their members and which ones just want your money? Legitimate societies tend to be officially accredited as such and have nonprofit status; scam societies do not meet these qualifications.

NSCS is accredited with the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), the nation’s only certifying agency for college and university honor societies. ACHS sets standards for organizational excellence and for scholastic eligibility. ACHS’ membership can be seen here. Requirements for admission into ACHS can be seen here.

NSCS is a true 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

NSCS founder and CEO Steve Loflin provides some more tips on telling true honor societies from scams in this USA Today article.
