Membership Requirements

Membership in Omicron Delta Kappa is as much an obligation and responsibility in leadership as it is a mark of highest distinction and honor. Membership is awarded to undergraduate junior and senior students; to graduate students; to faculty, staff, administration and alumni; and to persons qualifying for membership "honoris causa." Student membership candidates must rank in the upper 35 percent in scholarship of their school or college, a prefered cumulative GPA of 3.30 for both Juniors and Seniors (candidates who have a GPA under a 3.30 will still be considered), and must show leadership in at least one of five areas:

  • Scholarship;
  • Athletics;
  • Campus or community service, social and religious activities, and campus government;
  • Journalism, speech, and the mass media; and,
  • Creative and performing arts.

Applicants should apply online by the application deadline. If there are any question, feel free to email Matt Baker at msb@vt.edu


Once accepted into Omicron Delta Kappa at Virginia Tech, a one-time memebrship fee of $125 will be due to the circle.
