The number of predatory honor societies continues to rise, with organizations asking students to pay a membership fee while offering virtually no benefit. The Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), an accreditation body, combats this by evaluating societies on numerous criteria. This project aimed to investigate the structure of accredited honor societies to see their similarities. Areas where accredited societies differed from ACHS guidelines were also discovered. This research was conducted using content analysis of a sample of accredited honor societies. This project aims to show how honor societies can structure themselves to be on track for ACHS accreditation. Additionally, using these findings, a Constitution was written for Delta Mu Sigma, a newly founded honor society, that is in keeping with ACHS guidelines.
