From the National Communication Association Website:

Sigma Chi Eta (SCH) is the official community college honor society of the National Communication Association (NCA). Since 2000, SCH has fostered growth in the communication discipline among two-year colleges and universities. Every year, Sigma Chi Eta inducts and rewards new outstanding communication students while exploring options for community college students to transfer to a four-year college or university or enter the workforce. Once inducted, a student is a member for life and is expected to always strive for excellence. It is the hope of SCH and NCA that each member will maintain a relationship with his or her alma mater, faculty, and other students of the discipline.Honor society memberships carry benefits beyond those of the society itself. Sigma Chi Eta members may vote in chapter meetings, hold chapter offices, attend scholarly presentations, represent their chapters at conventions, submit papers to panels and teleconferences, and compete for chapter awards. Additional national office and award opportunities are available. Members may wear their society pins and optional honor cords at graduation ceremonies.

Honor society memberships enhance college transfer and employment applications. National honor society members have networking resources of similarly high-achieving colleagues in social and professional outlets.

The requirements for being in the COC COMS Chapter of Sigma Chi Eta are an overall 3.0 GPA, and a 3.25 in the major with 9 units either having been completed or in process.
