About Chi Alpha Sigma

Chi Alpha Sigma is the first, and only, nonprofit organization that was established to recognize four-year 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 we 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 fourth full time semester, and earn a 3.5 and 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.

Establish a chapter on your campus

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 answer a few other simple questions. Our staff will then review the information before contacting those listed by the school.
