Frequently Asked Questions
What is the GPA requirement
The GPA requirements are set by Omicron Delta Kappa National and require students to abide by the following criteria. Your class standing is based upon the number of credits that you possess. Omicron Delta Kappa requires a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.650 for Juniors (60-89 credits), 3.700 for Seniors (90+ credits), and 3.800 for Graduate Students to be considered for membership.
Am I allowed to re-apply if I was not invited into ODK in a previous semester?
Yes! We encourage all applicants who are not accepted to reapply. In fact, most members do not get in after their first application since reviewers hope to seek continued growth in leadership before offering invitations to candidates. To make it easier for re-applicants, the application activities are saved from semester to semester but we hope to see changes and growth with each subsequent submission.
Are off-campus activities permitted on the application such as employment, paid internships, and volunteer positions?
You can include them for consideration, but the most important activities you can put on your application will be your on-campus experience. We suggest that you list the top 20 activities which you consider significant activities and honors.
How should I distinguish between a leadership position in a club and the club itself?
In one entry, list both the organization name as well as your position within it. For the dates, you can put how long you’ve been in the organization as well as specifically specifying duration of roles within the activity description.
