Academic Recognition

Chi Alpha Epsilon (XAE) was formed to recognize the academic achievements of students admitted to colleges and universities through non-traditional criteria. The Plattsburgh Chapter, Alpha Rho, was established in the fall of 1999. Members proudly display their XAE pins and honor cords on commencement day as a reflection of their academic excellence and service to the program. Students who strive for excellence and who would like to receive the distinction of membership in XAE must meet the following eligibility requirements. Two consecutive semesters of:
