Beta Alpha Psi
Membership in the Beta Alpha Psi honor society provides opportunities for continued growth in your chosen field. Members are required to be active participants. Belmont's chapter expects each member or pledge to average 10 hours of participation per semester (measured in 50 minute increments). Of those 10 hours, a minimum of 3 hours should be in professional activities (attending speaker events or getting training) and a minimum of 3 hours should be in service activities. Both speakers and service opportunities are designed to enhance your education and experience. Service activities may include tutoring, working in the accounting clinic, participating in the IRS program assisting with tax return preparation (VITA) or participating in community service.
