SDI’s affiliations with honor societies give our students opportunities to go above and beyond during THEIR time as a student.

Delta Epsilon Tau Honor Society (DETH)

Delta Epsilon Tau is the premier national honor society for America’s accredited distance learning institutions. Delta Epsilon Tau only places Chapters in those institutions recognized by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission. The purpose of the Society is to encourage and recognize superior student academic achievement, character and leadership. The fact that an individual is elected to membership sets her or him apart from other students and clearly demonstrates a serious commitment to distance education and self-study.
