About Chi Alpha Sigma
Chi Alpha Sigma is the first, and only, nonprofit organization that was established to recognize college student-athletes who excel both on and off the field of competition. Founded in 1996 by then DePauw University head football coach, Nick Mourouzis, Chi Alpha Sigma continues to provide outstanding student-athletes with an opportunity to become connected within a fraternal association that aligns their educational and athletic successes for a lifetime.
What does Chi Alpha Sigma do?
Chi Alpha Sigma is the first, and only, national scholar-athlete society to honor those four-year collegiate
student-athletes who have excelled in both the classroom and in athletic competition.
Chi Alpha Sigma recognizes undergraduate college student-athletes who participate in a sport at the varsity intercollegiate level, achieve junior academic standing or higher after their fifth full time semester, and earn a 3.4 or higher cumulative grade point average. Student-athletes who compete for a collegiate club team are also eligible if the club team is overseen by the athletics department at the local chapter.
Chi Alpha Sigma also recognizes that it is part of an athletics community made of diverse groups. Our organization supports all efforts in the realm of diversity, equity and inclusion.
How does a student-athlete become a member of Chi Alpha Sigma?
Membership in local chapters is an honor bestowed upon selected student-athletes. A college or university must be a four year institution and a member of the
NCAA, NAIA, NCCAA or USCAA.
Selection for membership is by an athletic department designee in consultation with the individual's head coach and is based on outstanding scholarship, earned athletic letter winner, and excellent character and citizenship.
How does an institution establish
a Chi Alpha Sigma chapter?
Any four-year institution with an active membership in either the NCAA, NAIA, NCCAA, or USCAA interested in joining Chi Alpha Sigma must complete a membership application and submit a $150 initial enrollment fee. To maintain your school's charter there is an annual fee.
Chapters will need to identify a chapter advisor, a secondary chapter advisor contact, and a current student-athlete chapter president.
