SALUTE National Honor Society

UT has an academic honor society for Veterans called SALUTE. The SALUTE Honor Society recognizes American active military, student veterans, and ROTC cadets* who have earned an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher (graduate students must have a minimum of 3.5 GPA). The goal of this honor society is to honor our student veterans who have shown courage, strength, leadership, excellence, and perseverance in their military endeavors and who are now showing that same commitment to their academic careers.

One unique element of our honor society includes the 4-tier system, which is designed to encourage student veterans to strive to improve their GPAs and advance to higher tier levels in the honor society during their academic careers.

*ROTC cadets (all branches) are allowed to officially join, but will not be inducted until after accepting a commission.
