The Big 3 (3.25+ GPA) and the Order of the Sword and Shield National Honor Society
#1
 The Order of the Sword and Shield is the first and only academic and professional honor society dedicated exclusively to homeland security, intelligence, emergency management, cyber and information security, and all protective security disciplines.  http://www.securityhonorsociety.org/home.html
 
3.25 GPA in one of over 25+ degree programs. $75 to join.
http://www.securityhonorsociety.org/stud...-page.html
 
TESU has an official Chapter
Excelsior College and COSC students apply directly through the National Chapter.
http://www.securityhonorsociety.org/chapters.html
 
I joined in 2015 through the National Chapter which was at St. John’s University in New York.
 
The challenge coin is high quality.

I meant: that is no problem for admission to this society? There is no residency requirement?

Do you have a degree plan from the Big 3 with over 50% of the credits completed as the website says?  You will submit your Big 3 transcript to them.  What is your major?  What college?  TECU students will most likely have to go through TESU's chapter.

I saw it before and assumed it was only for students who actually completed by TESU courses. I was wrong. I don't have such credits.

I joined through the professional membership channel in 2018.  Although I was with AMU at the time and had the GPA to go the academic route as well.
