Alpha Eta National Honor Society

In 1975, the Alpha Eta Society, a national scholastic honor society, was created for promotion and recognition of scholarship, leadership, and contributions to the health professions. In 2009, a Chapter of the Alpha Eta Society was established at the Medical University of South Carolina, with the goal of promoting these same merits among our College constituency. The Chapter is named in memory of Dr. Benjamin F. Lawson, Dean Emeritus of the College of Health Professions. Membership in the Alpha Eta Society is awarded to undergraduate degree recipients who rank in the top 20% of their graduating class and have at least a 3.80 cumulative grade point average, or to undergraduate degree recipients who have a 3.85 cumulative grade point average or better. Membership in Alpha Eta is awarded to graduate degree recipients who rank in the top 20% of their graduating class and have at least a 3.90 cumulative grade point average, or to graduate degree recipients who have a 3.95 cumulative grade point average or better. Members of the Alpha Eta Society have the privilege of wearing the green honor cords and insignia pins with their academic regalia.
