        Fall 2018 applications are now open for Beta Alpha Psi & Financial Leadership Society! Eligible students received a personalized link via email, or can email Mrs. Lakas to obtain the appropriate link. Applications & Handshake profiles for both organizations are due by 8 am on Friday, August 24th.

        If you are not already involved with Beta Alpha Psi, I would like to invite you to apply this term. Beta Alpha Psi is a national honorary and service organization widely recognized as the first and foremost student organization for accounting majors. Beta Alpha Psi is the ULTIMATE pathway to internship and full-time employment opportunities in the accounting field. It is through our meetings and recruiting events that you learn about the profession and connect with accounting professionals, a.k.a. future employers. It is the best way to market yourself to potential employers and you are guaranteed to learn something in the process too.

        To qualify for membership in Beta Alpha Psi, you must have:

        • a minimum GPA of 3.0 overall (or 3.25 in most recent 30+ semester hours),
        • a 3.0 accounting GPA, and
        • a 3.0 upper-level accounting GPA*.

        *You must have already completed ACCT 3110 Intermediate Accounting I; transfer students must complete two upper-level accounting courses at Auburn with at least a 3.0 GPA.

        If you have not completed ACCT 3110, you should apply for Financial Leadership Society, the precursor organization for BAP.

        Meetings are held on Tuesday nights from 6-7 PM and attendance is required. BAP candidates also need to complete six BAP service hours throughout the fall semester to be initiated. Further information will be provided to all accepted applicants at the first meeting on Tuesday, August 28th at 5:30 PM.

        **existing BAP members do not need to reapply**
