National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS)

About The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS)

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is the honor society for high-achieving first- and second-year college students who are in the top 20 percent of their class with a 3.6 or better grade point average on a 4.0 scale. NSCS is recognized by the Association of College Honor Societies. NSCS has more than 600,000 lifetime members from 245 university-recognized on-campus chapters in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Campus chapters are student-run organizations with oversight from an on-campus advisor affiliated with the university and dedicated NSCS staff members.

The NSCS Community College Program was founded in 2009 on the Northern Virginia Community College campus in Annandale, Va., and the Hillsborough Community College campus in Tampa, Fla. The NSCS Community College Program was established to create a meaningful community college experience; provide two-year students with a network of members (two-year, four-year and online), faculty and administration, and recruitment partners; offer a unique and robust package of membership benefits to high achieving two-year students, and bridge the gap between two- and four-year institutions.

NSCS is the ONLY interdisciplinary honor society that offers membership to students from both two-year AND four-year institutions. This allows two-year members to take advantage of their NSCS membership throughout the entire transition process so that they may transfer membership into the chapter on their four-year campus and be engaged in an organization on their four-year campus immediately upon transferring.
