Chapter Performance Levels

StudentCPT Chapters are classified into three different levels: Developing Chapters, Star Chapters and Golden Star Chapters. Our goal is for all chapters to eventually reach the Golden Star Chapter status. The minimum expectations for each chapter level are listed below:

All chapters are considered Developing Chapters until they achieve Star Chapter status.

During the academic school year, a Star Chapter meets the following criteria:

  • Elects officers
  • Has a minimum of five (5) registered student members
  • Conducts at least four (4) chapter meetings
  • Participates in at least one (1) CPT-approved community service activity
  • Submits activity reports after each chapter meeting and community service project

  • Promotes StudentCPT ethics competitions
  • Sends students to the StudentCPT Leadership Conference
