Only sophomores and juniors who have attended Aliso Niguel High School for one or more years are eligible to apply.  Even though a student may meet all requirements, membership is not guaranteed.  We are limited to the number of new members by both chapter by-laws and logistics, but preference is given to juniors.  Freshmen and seniors are not eligible to apply to the ANHS Chapter of NHS.

The Chapter Advisor gathers and researches all application materials to present to the Faculty Council.  The Faculty Council makes the final decisions for acceptance of members.  

Accepted students must be NHS members in good standing for at least four semesters, including the semester of their induction, in order to graduate with NHS honors.
