  • attainment of a GPA of 3.0 or better.

There are no admission requirements for faculty members. All are eligible and welcome to join a chapter. Chapters may also elect honorary members. These candidates must be persons of high ethical and professional standards.

A life-membership fee is paid by each prospective member of Omicron Delta Epsilon upon election to the Society.

The purchase of the official key or pin by the initiates is optional but highly encouraged (see the merchandise page).
