Legacy Candidate Status 

A legacy candidate is the daughter, granddaughter, adopted daughter, stepdaughter, or legal ward* of an active or deceased member and submits a legacy application. 

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority defines a legal ward as one in which an appropriate court of law legally places permanent care, control, and custody with a member of the Sorority; court documentation will be requested. 

Legacy Provision 

The living FAMILY MEMBER must have been active for at least two years immediately preceding the submission of an Undergraduate or Graduate Legacy Application. Two years is defined as twenty-four (24) consecutive months. Undergraduates and graduates that apply via legacy provision still must fulfill all other membership requirements. 

Family MEMBERS can verify eligibility prior to THE candidate submitting a legacy application.
