Saint Joseph’s University juniors and seniors who have a G.P.A. of 3.5 or higher are invited by formal invitation to apply in the Summer; these applications must be submitted through the online form (which can be found to the right) by October 26th. After the applications have been evaluated, certain students will be invited to interview in late November with present officers. Applicants who are studying abroad in the fall are encouraged to apply. Their interview will take place via phone or Skype. A final decision will be made after the interview process has finished, no later than November 30th. Further, the President of Saint Joseph’s University is annually accorded the privilege of nominating from the scholastic eligibility list not more than three additional candidates for membership. The President must approve the list of candidates nominated.
