FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  
How much does it cost to join Alpha Lambda Delta?
Membership is $60 and is good for a lifetime! A portion of these funds go to the National Office and the remainder stays with our local chapter. The local chapter dues pay for chapter operating expenses (mailings, refreshments, service projects, local scholarships, induction ceremony, etc.).

What do the dues cover?
The national dues cover the cost of your membership certificate, a charm or lapel pin, and a copy of the national magazine, The Flame. In addition, you are eligible to compete for 32 undergraduate scholarships of $1000 and 23 graduate fellowships of $3000-$7500. The national dues also cover the cost of an annual leadership/activities workshop.

Can I lose membership in Alpha Lambda Delta if my grades drop?
No. Although Alpha Lambda Delta encourages academic excellence throughout your collegiate career, once you have met the criteria for membership in Alpha Lambda Delta and have been initiated, your membership cannot be taken away. If your cumulative GPA falls below 3.5, you will just not be eligible to apply for any scholarships.
In 2004, the National Council approved a change in the bylaws allowing chapters to remove from membership any members who had been found in violation of their school's academic honesty policy.

Can I join both Alpha Lambda Delta and other honor societies? What's the difference?
There is no conflict between membership in Alpha Lambda Delta and other honor societies; in fact, joining more than one will give you greater scholarship opportunities. Honor societies often offer undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships.

If I don't join Alpha Lambda Delta this year, will I be invited again next year if my GPA is still 3.50 or above?
No, students are only eligible for invitation once. If the invitation is not accepted when offered, it is not extended again. 

How much time commitment does Alpha Lambda Delta require?
None! We understand that many students already have a very full schedule. However, students who participate/donate at least 24 “ALD-eligible” hours will be awarded graduation cords upon completion of their volunteer efforts. Students can accumulate “ALD hours” from the time they are inducted until they graduate.

Who is in charge of Alpha Lambda Delta on my campus?
Dr. Donna M. Fox is the primary faculty advisor. The current ALD officers are shown on the ALD home page.

Is Alpha Lambda Delta going to sell my contact information to other companies?
No! Alpha Lambda Delta respects your privacy - we will never sell your private information to or share your private information with any third parties. The National Office does not retain any of your personal information in our files.
