Alpha Beta Kappa is the only Honor Society in America that represents degree granting institutions, junior colleges, senior colleges, and student- centered private career schools. Membership demonstrates that an institution of learning is committed to students. More importantly, membership denotes earned recognition to those individuals who have studied to learn a marketable skill.
