Alpha Eta Honor Society

Alpha Eta Logo

Alpha Eta is the National Honor Society of the Allied Health Professions whose members represent the top ten percent of graduates of Allied Health Schools and Colleges. The name is derived from the Greek for the first letters of our profession, Allied (Alpha) and Health (Eta). There are 90 chapters nationwide and nearly 35,000 members that have been initiated since the beginning of Alpha Eta in 1975.

The University of Oklahoma Chapter at the College of Allied Health is the founding chapter in Oklahoma (November 1982). The primary purpose of the Society is to recognize excellence and promote leadership and scholarship in the allied health profession. Each spring the Society hosts the College of Allied Health Research Exposition for students and faculty to exhibit their research.  The University of Oklahoma Chapter at the College of Allied Health by-laws.

Students eligible for membership in Alpha Eta are selected annually. Students and their families are honored at an initiation banquet where they are presented a certificate along with a pin and cord to be worn at graduation with their regalia.
