SHOULD YOU JOIN
BAP OR PAS?

Both are fantastic options. They are very similar. You attend the same meetings and have the same opportunities for both organizations. Below are a couple of differences between the two to help you decide which is a better fit.

 

Beta Alpha Psi has more requirements and responsibilities than PAS because it is the "main" organization.

BAP Requirements

  • Have at least a 3.0 GPA (if you just transferred, you can use your GPA from your previous institution)

  • Have at least a 3.0 GPA in upper-level courses (300-level and beyond)

  • Enrolled in at least one 300-level ACT, FIN, or CIS course (FIN300 doesn't apply because it is a part of the COB core curriculum)

Note: if you don't meet any of the above requirements, please join PAS this semester. You can consider joining BAP once you have met the requirements. 

BAP Responsibilities

  • Must attend all weekly meetings

    • Three absences allowed per semester. You can miss more but will have to do an extra two hours of community service for each additional missed meeting.

  • 10 hours of community service per semester

    • At least 5 BAP-sponsored hours 

PAS does not have any requirements to join nor any mandatory responsibilities. Anyone can join and can participate as much as they want.

 

However, BAP has a couple of additional benefits that PAS doesn't offer.

  • Name recognition

    • BAP is a national organization, and all firms know BAP (and the requirements and responsibilities of being in it). 

  • Graduation cord/stole

  • Leadership positions 

    • Available to BAP members, but not PAS members
