- Q: What does the teacher/advisor recommendation look like? A: Click here
- Q: Where do we find a list of requirements for next year's members? A: Click here
- Q: I'm having trouble accessing the online application--what do I do? A: Make sure you are both logged in to your csddocs account, and also logged out of ALL other google accounts on that computer. Click on #6 above. If you can't get in, and problems persist, see me in room C-203.
- Q: Can I ask any teacher to give me a recommendation? A: They need to meet the core/elective/advisor description, and ask fast! Faculty members have been instructed to only give recommendations for the first ten students that ask. So if the teacher you had in mind has already agreed to give ten recommendations, hurry and ask another teacher. Your selected advisor can also double-count as your core or elective teacher.
- Q: If I have to do NHS as a senior to get my graduation cords, why should I join as a sophomore or junior? Students who participate during their sophomore and junior years can be admitted as seniors with only a 3.6+ GPA instead of being held to a 3.75+ GPA. Beyond the lower GPA requirement, sophomores and juniors can train to become leading officers as seniors and make friends along the way. You can participate as a sophomore OR a junior to be admitted to NHS your senior with 3.6 GPA. 10th and 11th graders are typically less busy and can better commit to club activities. Members in good-standing will be presented a certificate of completion/membership at the end of each year of NHS participation.
- Q: I'm involved in a lot of activities next year, is NHS for me? A: Yes. The average NHS member is overly involved. I do not recommend being an officer if you have too many ongoing activities though. Sophomores/Juniors will only have a 20-hour service requirement, so I think it's definitely manageable. Seniors will have a 50-hour requirement. You have options between dates and times so it's pretty flexible as long as you plan ahead and commit. That being said, it's still a lot of work. The only non-negotiables are the quarterly meetings. I try to have them the first Monday morning A-days of the quarter to minimize conflicts, but you will be expected to make arrangments to be there even if there is a conflict.
