Alpha Sigma Lambda represents the top non-traditional students for 300 institutions across the United States.


We advocate for and support adult students throughout their studies, and past graduation offering lifelong membership to those that are inducted. ASL chapters help to foster a passion for lifelong learning and showcase the institutions commitment to offering higher education for adults, while allowing members to network with peers who are also committed to pursuing their education and striving for excellence.

Alpha Sigma Lambda members are part of a larger community that honors the adult student’s hard work and accomplishments. Each chapter has the ability to help honor these students, their teachers, families, and leaders within their institution. Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society 70 year history supporting adult students and it’s commitment to continue that support is why ASL is first in scholarship and leadership.
