How do you become eligible for HKN?

Students become inducted into Eta Kappa Nu during their junior and senior years at MIT. Juniors may get inducted by being in the top fourth of their course VI class, and seniors must be in the top third of their class to be eligible for membership. If you qualify academically, you will be automatically contacted by HKN. Generally, juniors must have at least a 4.7 GPA and seniors a 4.6 GPA to be contacted. Eligibles for HKN are responsible for completing 16 hours of community service to become initiated.
