APSU's Phi Kappa Chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma


Alpha Phi Sigma is the only nationally recognized honor society for criminal justice. Since it's foundation in 1942, Alpha Phi Sigma has grown to over 400 chapters at colleges and universities in 48 states, Guam, and Canada.  Here at APSU, we are proud to house the Phi Kappa chapter! 

Benefits of Membership

There are a multitude of benefits to becoming a member of Alpha Phi Sigma.  Amongst those benefits are the following:

How to Become a Member

In order to apply, you must have a minimum overall GPA of 3.2 and at least 9 credit hours of criminal justice courses completed.  The Membership Fee for Alpha Phi Sigma is a one-time payment of $60 dollars.  This is a Lifetime membership for which you will receive a certificate and a pin. Plus, additional graduation regalia is available to order. 

Students who do not qualify for Alpha Phi Sigma may join the local chapter (APSU Phi Kappa) if they are a CRJ Major or Minor with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 and at least one completed (3 hr) criminal justice course.  The fee to join only the local chapter is only $15 and includes an APSU Certificate.  Once the student has met the requirement to join nationally, their fee would be adjusted from $60 to $50.
