Visit our online store to order an honor cord, medallion, pin, or other Pi Sigma Alpha merchandise. Some chapters order regalia on your behalf. Please check in with your faculty advisor before you make a purchase. Please note: sales tax and/or shipping fees may apply.

The lifetime national membership fee is $35.00. This is paid only once Each new member receives a membership certificate, which is sent directly to the chapter. Some local chapters might collect a small additional fee from each initiate to use for their own chapter programs. 

Membership in the honor society is possible only for students currently enrolled in colleges or universities where chapters are located, who meet the specific academic eligibility criteria. Their eligibility must be verified by the chapter advisor. Individuals cannot join on their own.


There are a few ways to invite eligible students to join. After identifying eligible students, you may create an invitation group in the My Honor Society database, including a note that you can personalize. A how-to video can be found here: https://youtu.be/e6Z15L5E3KQ. This invitation allows students to follow a link and pay their dues. They may also order graduation regalia. At the end of the invitation window, we send all material to you for distribution at your induction event.


You can also send the national office a full list of eligible members and we can generate email invitations that allow students to follow a link and pay their dues. They may also order graduation regalia. At the end of the invitation window we send all material to you for distribution at your induction event. 


Another option is to conduct all outreach to eligible students and collect dues yourself. Once you do this, you can send the national office an email order form and payment for dues of newly inducted members. This option can be especially helpful if your chapter chooses to collect local dues.

Once payment is received, chapters should receive their orders within two weeks. For those using the online membership system, orders are not finalized and processed until the invitation close date (the deadline for students to accept).

The National Office sends out periodic communications to members about various award, grant, and event opportunities.  Members’ email addresses are never shared or sold.


If your institution does not allow you to share students’ names email addresses without their explicit permission, we can create a “no-contact” invitation link that you can send to eligible students so they can enter their own personal information.

If your certificate was lost or damaged, the National Office can issue a reprinted certificate for a fee of $15 plus shipping.  To place your order, please log on to My Honor Society and order your replacement directly. If you cannot log in, please email office@pisigmaalpha.org
