Prospective Chapter Information

A local chapter may be established, maintained or reactivated only in colleges and universities that grant associate, baccalaureate or higher degrees that provide instruction in agriculture and that are accredited by the appropriate national or regional accrediting agency.

All institutions that are candidates for a chapter of The Honor Society of Delta Tau Alpha must make formal charter application in writing to the National Council (National Officers - contact the National Advisor) at least 60 days prior to the annual National Convention (usually in March or April).

The application for a new chapter must receive the approval of 4/5 vote of the delegates present at the National Convention.

A local chapter of The Honor Society of Delta Tau Alpha cannot be established unless there are 6 or more students who are qualified. In general, students from four-year institutions must rank in the upper 35% of their class and have completed 45 semester hours of which 9 hours have been agriculture courses. Students from two-year institutions must rank in the upper 35% of their class and have completed 24 semester hours of which 6 hours have been agriculture courses. Complete requirements for membership may be found in The Delta Tau Alpha "Constitution and By-Laws."

An installation fee of $25 shall be paid by the Chapter prior to its installation. A one-time initiation fee of $25 makes a student a life-time member at the national level. Local chapters may have an additional initiation fee and/or annual dues.

Additional information is outlined in The Delta Tau Alpha "Constitution and By-Laws." Interested parties are urged to contact the National Advisor, National Executive Treasurer, or an Advisor of an existing Delta Tau Alpha Chapter.
