The Stars of Excellence Awards was established in 2007 and was based on the national standards of all organizations and university expectations of each chapter. The expectations cover intellectual and social development, personal health and moral values growth, organizational responsibility, proper risk management, scholarship, community and philanthropic service monetary donations, and chapter programming. All of the awards are based upon documentation of events during the academic calendar year.

To remain in good standing with the Office of Student Activities and Fraternity and Sorority Life, each chapter is required to maintain 80% in all aspects of the university and national guidelines, they are; Chapter Management, Risk Management, Fundraising, Scholarship, Community and Philanthropic Service, Membership Development, and Community Development.

Awards are presented to a chapter or chapters who have excelled in each category (80% or higher) based upon the documentation compiled over the past year. Only the first-place winner will receive a trophy.  All second and third-place finalists will receive a certificate.  For some awards, there may be a tie in the final tally and there may be no winners or only one winner in a category. In the end, the chapters that were at 90% or above before bonus points were calculated will receive the Chapter Excellence Award. For a chapter to win Chapter of the Year, they must be in good standing with the university and in each category area.
