Omega Nu Lambda National Honor Society

Eastern Kentucky University has been a forerunner in online education for more than a decade. Our online students — most of whom work full-time jobs and are raising families — work hard, juggle numerous priorities, and persevere to reach their goals. To formally recognize the accomplishments of these students, EKU is pleased to participate in the Omega Nu Lambda (ONL) honor society.

Offered exclusively to online students, Omega Nu Lambda (ONL) can enhance your online experience by:

  • Recognizing your academic success
  • Providing scholarship opportunities
  • Fostering new connections between you and other online students

Why Join

While the flexibility and convenience of an online degree allows for academic success, students often wish for a stronger connection to their school and fellow online students.  ONL provides a sense of community and offers members the opportunity to network with other ONL members in the United States. Your academic accomplishments and ONL membership will also help you stand out to future employers.

How to Join

EKU’s chapter of ONL is pleased to have more than 120 members. Membership in ONL requires the following:

  • Completion of 15 credit hours of online courses
  • GPA of 3.2 or higher
  • A onetime membership fee of $65

After payment of the onetime membership fee, you will be a lifetime member of ONL. As part of your membership you will receive an Omega Nu Lambda National Honor Society Certificate of Recognition, honor cords to wear at graduation, and Omega Nu Lambda lapel pin mailed directly to the address you provide when you accept your invitation to join Omega Nu Lambda.
