The election of members to this chapter shall be done by a chapter faculty council. As being on time to school and classes is a matter of responsibility, it is a factor taken into consideration when evaluating a student's character. Therefore, excessive absences and tardiness may be a cause for deferral or non-acceptance. In addition to the national guidelines, acceptance into the Holy Spirit Chapter of the National Honor Society requires that the student is involved in activities/service within DePaul Catholic.
