Junior/Secondary Handbook


What happens if I have a student who transfers or changes programs?

Chapter Sponsors are obligated to supply the student’s documented hours to all new sponsors when the student moves to a new school. Each chapter should accept all previously documented points and/or inductions, even if they come from a different type of program or dance setting.

Can a student be Inducted into two NHSDA Junior Program Chapters or two NHSDA Secondary Program Chapters?

No, if a prospective inductee is simultaneously enrolled in two or more programs that hold chapters (e.g., a high school and a dance studio), the student should select one chapter through which to seek induction, yet once inducted at one school, they can participate in NHSDA activities at the other school as well.  It is suggested that if a student wants to wear the blue/white honor cords during the high school graduation ceremony that they seriously consider being formally inducted in the high school chapter.  This will make it much easier for the high school to approve the student to wear the honor cords during graduation. 

Can a student apply points earned in one level of the Honor Society toward another level?

No points may be carried over from the Junior Program into the Secondary Program. Also, no points may be carried over from the Secondary Program into the Collegiate Program as the National Point System for college students has different requirements.
