To further encourage academic performance, the Alpha Epsilon chapter of Sigma Chi has established a system of incentives for extraordinary achievement. Success in the classroom is important, but we also believe it is equally important to be a well rounded student, involved with the community and university and consistently pursuing betterment of one's self.
As a result, we have developed a per semester scholastic incentive program that is aligned with the Seven Standards on which our Fraternity was founded.
