About Theta Chi Alpha
What does Theta Chi Alpha do?
Theta Chi Alpha is a nonprofit honor society that recognizes student-athletes from two-year institutions of higher education who excel both on and off the field of competition.
Theta Chi Alpha recognizes college student-athletes who participate in a sport at the varsity intercollegiate level, complete three full-time semesters (or four trimesters), and earn a 3.4 or higher cumulative grade point average. Student-athletes who compete for a collegiate club team are also eligible if the club team is overseen by the athletics department at the local chapter.
Theta Chi Alpha also recognizes that it is part of an athletics community made of diverse groups. Our organization supports all efforts in the realm of diversity, equity and inclusion.

a Theta Chi Alpha chapter?
Any two-year institution with an active membership in the NJCAA, CCCAA, FCSAA or, NWAC interested in joining Theta Chi Alpha must complete a membership application and submit a $125 initial enrollment fee. To maintain your school's charter there is a $75 annual fee.

How does a student-athlete become a member of Theta Chi Alpha?
