Dues and Fees

Because membership in Blue Key is an honor, there are no dues or initiation fees.

Becoming a Member

Potential Blue Key members are nominated by school/college deans, senior administrators and Blue Key members and are then selected by current student members and advisors. Students may not nominate themselves nor is there an application process.
