OSP/EOF Student Organizations

Chi Alpha Epsilon logo


Chi Alpha Epsilon was formed to recognize the academic achievements of students admitted to colleges and universities through non-traditional criteria who utilize developmental educational support services. Its purposes are to promote continued high academic standards, to foster increased communication among its members, and to honor academic excellence achieved by those students admitted to college through developmental programs. The involvement of eligible alumni enables networking for members. Programs sponsored by the society encourage other students toward this accomplishment.

Membership is open to those individuals who are admitted to accredited two or four year institutions of higher learning, colleges, or universities via Student Support/developmental programs, like EOF. Students must achieve and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better for two consecutive semesters. The process requires the completion of Chi Alpha Epsilon Initiate Forms and a one-time membership fee which covers the cost of the induction. The induction ceremony is held every spring semester here at NJCU.
