About CSF Membership
Becoming a CSF member holds many benefits. Read below to find out how to become a member and what it can do for you!
CSF Membership is based on scholarship and is gained after qualifying grades are earned each semester. In order to become a member, the student must submit an application each semester the student is eligible. A point system specified in the CSF State By-Laws establishes the membership requirements. To secure eligibility for CSF membership, a student must earn sufficient points from pre-approved course lists. The majority of the required membership points must come from University of California accepted course work. Students must also participate in at least two community service events each year to maintain their membership, such as Peer Tutoring, DHS Ambassador Program, or other local community service projects arranged through CSF.
Life Membership (Seal-bearer) is achieved by qualifying at least 4 consecutive semesters (or 5 non-nonconsecutive semesters) in the last three years of high school, (one semester must be in your senior year) and earns the CSF Gold Seal on diplomas and transcripts. Students must be active with CSF and participate in community service projects during the school year. These students graduate in white robes and are also eligible for further scholariships offered by the state CSF branch.
