Application for membership in Beta Alpha is limited to the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters of each school year. This limited enrollment window is a policy set and enforced by the national chapter of Beta Alpha Psi and therefore exceptions cannot be made. For the Fall semester, the application deadline typically comes around the third week of September. Attendance at the banquet is also mandatory for becoming a member. The banquet for the Fall 2013 semester will be on November 1. For the Spring semester, the application deadline typically comes towards the end of January. If interested in applying please be sure to contact our VP of Recruiting at RecruitingVP@WeberBAP.com with any questions.

Individual member involvement directly affects the individual student’s experience in BAP. Member participation also affects the standing of the chapter. We recommend that each member attend at least 8-12 hours of BAP sponsored professional hours, and 8-12 hours of BAP sponsored service activities each school year. In addition to BAP sponsored events and activities, we encourage all members to be actively involved in the community.
Members and candidates can log up to 5 hours for professional activities and up to 5 hours for service activities that are not sponsored by BAP. It is important that you keep a record of the activity or event you participated in, who sponsored it, the date, and the number of hours and minutes you participated.
We encourage members to continue being active participants in professional and service activities even after graduation, though this may be mean more involvement in career related professional and service activities. Please contact the Secretary/Recorder if you are no longer planning on participating in the Theta Tau Chapter events and activities. Let us know when you graduate, or if you are not planning on actively participating because of other circumstances. We will update our records appropriately.
Associate Member Standing
All future associate members are required to complete 20 hours total of BAP activities before becoming an associate member. You can start accumulating hours when you are enrolled in any 2000 level accounting class. Associate members have some, but not all the benefits of a full member of Beta Alpha Psi.
