The Office of Disability Services is bringing Delta Alpha Pi International Honor Society to Texas State! Delta Alpha Pi is an academic honor society for students with disabilities in colleges and universities. This is a growing organization that celebrates and supports academic achievement for post-secondary students with disabilities.
Because of the negative stereotyping associated with disability, students have been reluctant to identify themselves publicly. Delta Alpha Pi Honor Society presents an opportunity to change that perception by recognizing students with disabilities for their academic accomplishments. In addition this Honor Society facilitates development of skills in leadership, advocacy and education for participating students.
Students initiated into Delta Alpha Pi International Honor Society must meet the following criteria:
- Present with a documented disability and work with one of the faculty or staff members in the Office of Disability Services
- Demonstrate an interest in disability issues.
Undergraduate students must have:
- Completed a minimum of 24 credits
- Earned an overall Quality Point Average of 3.10 on a 4.00 scale.
Graduate students must have:
- Completed a minimum of 18 credits
- Earned an overall Quality Point Average of 3.30 on a 4.00 scale.
Please fill out this form if you are interested in being a part of this organization!

Ibeth is extremely excited to be a member of Delta Alpha Pi because she strongly believes that as students with disabilities we must take a leading role as our own advocates.

"I am currently majoring in General Studies with minors in Criminal Justice, Forensic Psychology, and Communications Studies. I hope to one day make a difference in people's lives for the better and make this world a safer place to live. My overall goal with this honor society here at Texas State is to help out all with disabilities and spread awareness. This group is a remarkable chance for developing oneself and gaining experience with working together for the greater good. I will do everything in my power to ensure that all members have the equal opportunity to participate in the meetings and events that we will host."
