Beta Alpha Psi
BAP - Theta Xi Technical/Professional Events Policy
BAP – Theta Xi chapter allows students to count up to 2 hours of non-BAP sponsored technical/professional events toward their membership requirements.
We encourage students to report all of their non-BAP sponsored activities because this helps the chapter to meet our “Superior” status ranking by the national BAP organization.
Submit the “BAP Technical/Professional Event” Form for each professional event attended, excluding BAP Technical Meetings. You may be asked to submit additional documentation about the event.

Many events will be advertised through the BAP list-serve and on our web calendar, but any event that meets the following requirements may be counted for credit.
Pre-approval of events is NOT required, but we cannot guarantee that an event which is not advertised through the list-serve will receive credit unless approval is obtained from the chapter secretary (email@example.com) at least 1 week before the event.
