Students who are sociology majors, as well as those minoring in sociology, can become Alpha Kappa Delta members. Students majoring in other subjects can also become members if they have taken at least four sociology classes during their studies, are considered juniors by their respective schools, and are in the top 35 percent of their class.

Kappa Alpha Delta carries a membership of 120,000 across 660 chapters in the United States.
