Pi Alpha Xi is the Honor Society for Horticulture, but not everyone is eligible to join. Only the top students in the junior and senior classes with a demonstrated interest in horticulture are invited to join. Graduate students and faculty with an emphasis in these fields are also eligible. Students must have an academic average of at least a "B" (3.00 cumulative grade point average on a 4.00 system). Chapters may adopt higher standards. Candidates should give promise of continued activity and interest in the field of horticulture.
The initial national membership fee of $35 entitles a member to lifetime national membership. New members will also receive a Pi Alpha Xi certificate and a recognition pin. Generally the local chapters will assess an annual membership fee to their active members. See your local chapter president for specific details.
Chapter dues of $50 are payable annually to Pi Alpha Xi National and mailed to the Executive Secretary. - See PAX Board
Chapters currently listed as “inactive” may be reactivated by paying current year and past 2 year dues. Reactivation dues of $60 are payable to Pi Alpha Xi National and mailed to the Executive Secretary. - See PAX Board
