Alpha Phi Sigma - Mu Mu Chapter

Alpha Phi Sigma is the National Honor Society for criminal justice. In order to become a member, students must meet certain academic qualifications. Students must also pay a one-time initiation fee to national headquarters, as well as chapter dues each semester.

Students involved in the Mu Mu chapter enjoy many benefits after joining, including a membership certificate, lapel pin and wallet card and recognition at our annual awards ceremony. Active graduating members are eligible to wear the honor stole, medallion and cord at graduation.

Students may apply to join the honor society during a designated timeframe each semester. Application materials and deadlines will be provided at the beginning of each semester. The Mu Mu chapter of APS hosts a bimonthly book club and participates in multiple service projects per semester.
