NSCS Eligibility Requirements

Scholar Eligibility

Membership in NSCS is by invitation and extended to undergraduate students in all academic disciplines who meet the eligibility requirements described below.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Attain at least a cumulative 3.4 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale.
  • Be enrolled as a first- or second-year undergraduate student at the time of application
  • Have successfully completed credits equivalent to a minimum of one term of full-time study but no more than half the number required for completion of the bachelor’s degree requirements of the institution where you are currently enrolled

If you meet these requirements and attend a college or university with an active chapter, you’ll receive an invitation to join during your first or second year. If you do not attend a university with an active chapter, or your university does not provide information to us, you can also nominate yourself.

NSCS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, age, financial status, social status, or sexual orientation.
