Beta Alpha Psi – Recruitment Information

Thank you for your interest in Beta Alpha Psi! Fall Quarter applications are currently closed. Please check back in later this quarter for Winter Quarter applications.


To become a member, you must commit yourself to contributing to the numerous programs and activities that have been a part of our Delta Chapter’s tradition since 1921.

Applying for Membership

The Beta Alpha Psi Delta chapter recruits during Fall and Winter Quarters. Applications open the first week of the quarter and close the Friday of the second full week. Requirements for students who apply in Fall Quarter and Winter Quarter will be slightly different – details are below.

Eligibility and Requirements

Fall Quarter Recruiting Requirements

Winter Quarter applicants have the same candidacy and participation requirements as Fall Quarter applicants for their first quarter; however, they must fulfill 32 hours rather than the 40 hours for their first year in Beta Alpha Psi.

10 of those hours must be professional, 10 must be service, and the remaining 12 can be either professional or service.

After the end of the first academic year, the student must fulfill the regular 40 hours per year to maintain candidacy/membership.

Candidates and Members

There are two tiers to membership within Beta Alpha Psi: candidacy, and full membership.

All students who apply and are accepted will be candidates the quarter they apply, assuming they are eligible as outlined in the Guide above.

Students who fulfill the requirements during the recruitment quarter and are eligible for membership per the Guide will automatically be invited for membership initiation. Students who are not yet eligible for membership will continue to remain as candidates but will be automatically invited for membership initiation upon declaration of Accounting/IS/Finance as their major and completion of their first upper division Accounting/IS/Finance course.
