AED South Carolina Beta Honor Cord Policy
According to the National office, Alpha Epsilon Delta is both an honor society and a service organization. A member is joined into the privileges as well as responsibilities of membership. Members in Furman University's AED are at an advantage because contacts between themselves and other pre-health students, medical/health students, physicians, educators, and our pre-med advisor are promoted through our Chapter's activities. Service to the community is at the root of health care, and the Furman University Chapter, South Carolina Beta, also serves to promote and unite similarly interested students for the benefit of the community.

To stay as an active member and receive an honor cord, the AED member must obtain 15 points per year with 6 of the 15 points devoted to service within AED. Therefore, in order to graduate as an active member indicated by receipt of an honor cord, a member would have to obtain 30 total points over the 2 years (beginning with induction), 12 of the points spent in service to the community. The breakdown of points is as follows:
