Pinnacle
The Non-Traditional Student Honor Society

The Pinnacle Non-Traditional Honor Society recognizes Non-Traditional students. With over 150 chartered institutions on more than 175 campuses, Pinnacle honorees can be found in every corner of our nation.  The students who have been inducted into membership in Pinnacle represent every slice of American non-traditional higher education: working parents, single parents, retirees returning to higher education, mid-life adults starting second careers, disabled students, veterans, and those who are financially independent.

To qualify for Pinnacle membership, you must be a Non-Traditional student, have a minimum grade point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale, be involved in at least 3 campus organizations and/or community activities, and demonstrate leadership, persistence, and future promise.  There is a $40.00 membership fee which includes your lifetime membership and certificate.

If you are interested in becoming a member of Pinnacle, please contact the NTSS office at 618.453.7521 or email at nontrad@siu.edu
