How to Apply for Membership in
Mu Eta Sigma:
There is an initial fee of $45 dollars to apply for membership to Mu Eta Sigma.
Ten, (10), hours of personal, or joint, community service is to be performed by each member, each year, prior to their renewal date. Each member is given one year to complete his/her 10 hours of community service (12 months from their membership activation date). At the completion of the student's 10 hours of community service, the student, or parent, is to log onto this website and update their student's record with the type of community service completed. This will allow the student to maintain an active status with Mu Eta Sigma for the the student's one year membership.

These items are not available for purchase, but are only available to our senior members through our Mu Eta Sigma Enhanced Senior Membership.

RENEWAL MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION:
Because the tests we recognize for eligibility are given at multiple times throughout the year, we did not establish an annual deadline for Mu Eta Sigma membership. Your membership date begins from the date of application through the following 12 months. Renewal notification will be sent to the student and family at the email addresses provided with application. Spam filters may sometimes prevent the receipt of the email, so feel free to email and ask about your renewal date if a search of your email does not provide you the date of your application.
In order to maintain an active status in Mu Eta Sigma, membership may be renewed each consecutive year by:
(1) Paying a renewal fee of $20 prior to membership expiration.
(2) Completing and recording another 10 hours of community service during the next 12 months.
Test scores will NOT need to be resubmitted as long as an active membership is maintained.
If membership is allowed to expire, you may reactivate your membership at any time during the 12 months following your expiration date. There is a reactivation fee of $25, along with the annual renewal fee of $20.
