ASL Honor Society

Phone Icon null
Group of Members Diverse Hands Together


Join ASLTA at the associate level, and then add the ASLHS program once you've joined. Schools that offer a minimum of two years of ASL instruction are eligible to form chapters of the ASLHS on campus. Interested ASL students do not join ASLHS on an individual basis but instead become members of the local ASLHS chapter on their campus. See below to see how!

Requirements to Establish a Chapter 

Each school must establish a chapter for eligibility to participate in ASL Honor Society. To establish an ASLHS chapter at your school you need to meet the following requirements:

  • The junior high, high school, two-year college, four-year college/university or Deaf School must offer a minimum of two years of ASL coursework.
  • The chapter must also have an ASL teacher who is willing to sponsor the ASLHS.
  • The ASL teacher (or "Sponsor") must be a member in good standing of the American Sign Language Teachers Association and remain in good standing.
  • Annual ASLHS chapter fees must be kept current.

Disclaimer: We are under ASLTA as a program. If you want to establish ASL Honor Society, you will need to pay two membership dues.
