Becoming A Member

Qualifying candidates may begin the membership process at any time during the academic year; admittance into SALUTE takes approximately 30 days to complete; all members are honored at induction ceremonies that take place in December and May.

To begin the induction process, a qualifying candidate must:

  1. Submit the membership application, unofficial transcripts of all qualifying college-level coursework, and a DD-214, Discharge from Active Duty, or copy of military orders to the SALUTE Director for review; (SALUTE Director will verify qualifying work and determine the appropriate GPA tier).
  2. SALUTE Director will contact candidate via email with the proposed GPA tier (for undergraduate members); the candidate may accept the tier or request an appeal (note: for appeals, candidate must submit OFFICIAL transcripts to the Director for review who will then consult with the SALUTE Coordinator and a representative from the Registrar’s Office).
  3. Once a GPA tier for the candidate has been finalized and acknowledged in written form by the candidate (email or hardcopy document), his or her name will be included on the submission sheet. Candidate may then submit membership payment of $45.00 via cash, check, or credit/debit to the SALUTE Director.
  4. The SALUTE Director will send the list of inductees to the SALUTE national office.
  5. Annual induction ceremony for candidates accepted during that academic year will take place during May. An academic year includes Summer, Fall, and Spring applicants approved for SALUTE admission (e.g., Summer 2021, Fall 2021, and Spring 2022 candidates would be inducted during the May 2022 ceremony).
