FAQ

1) HOW DO I JOIN AED?

Potential as well as established members can fill out the AED application online at www.aedfsu.com. The application deadline is midnight the Friday after the second general body meeting of the fall and spring semester. If a potential member misses the application deadline they must wait until the following semester to apply to AED. By filling out the application members agree to abide by the rules and membership criteria established in the Alpha Epsilon Delta constitution.

** All AED members (new and returning) must fill out an application and pay dues to remain an active member of the honor society

**If you are joining AED as a freshman you will be eligible for national induction once you are in the spring semester of your sophomore year and you meet the GPA and points requirements.


2)Paying Alpha Epsilon Delta Dues through Venmo

If you already have a venmo account:

Please pay your dues to Alyssa AED. In the description, please write “AED Dues.”

For new Venmo users:

Make an account at venmo.com or through the Venmo app. Once you have created the venmo account, add your bank or credit card information, which can be found in the settings.  It is recommended that you choose the bank information option because you will be charged a 3% fee if you decide to use your credit card. Follow the steps to add the payment option in the app such as adding the account number and routing number.

Once your Venmo account has been setup, click pay or the clipboard icon on the app. You will need to pay Ankit Patel, Treasurer. Type in the dues amount and finally in the “What’s it for?” add AED Dues. Click the pay button and it’s that easy! You will get a confirmation in your email that the transaction has been completed. Please save that email confirmation in case there is a error. The online receipt will be AED’s method of verifying that member dues have been paid.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Ankit P. at treasurer.aedfsu@gmail.com .
