Chi Alpha Epsilon

The Chi Alpha Epsilon National Honor Society formed to recognize the academic achievements of students admitted to colleges and universities through non-traditional criteria.

The purpose of our society is to: 

  • promote high academic standards
  • foster increased communication among its members
  • honor academic excellence 


The Beta Sigma chapter of Chi Alpha Epsilon is open to all TRiO participants, past and present, who earned a 3.0 or higher GPA at Northern Arizona University for two consecutive full-time semesters.
