How to Join
Accounting Society (AS) is the segment of our organization open to students from all majors, academic levels, and disciplines whose members make up the bulk of our membership. New to CSULB? Have not yet taken an upper-division course? Considering a career in Accounting, Finance, Information Systems, or a related field, but not sure what it’s all about? Start here. Accounting Society is a fantastic place to build your professional portfolio, make connections, grow friendships, and develop yourself as a student, a professional, and a person.
Membership in Accounting Society grants you access to Meet the Firms, our biggest professional event, as well as all of our socials, speaking engagements, firm tours, and professional development workshops. Accounting Society is seen as the stepping-stone for those interested in Beta Alpha Psi, but in order to pledge for BAΨ, students must meet the minimum requirements outlined in the How to Join – Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) page.
Beta Alpha Psi (BAΨ) is an international honor and service society for Accounting, Finance, and Information Systems students. Founded in 1919, the purpose of BAΨ is to recognize outstanding academic achievements, promote the study and practice of financial information professions, provide opportunities for self-development, and encourage ethical leadership, social awareness, and public responsibility. Many business professionals you will meet as a student had their roots in BAΨ. More information can be found on the BAP International website.
Our chapter, designated as Gamma Omega, was founded by the late Muhammed Moustafa in 1972. Forty-five years later, our chapter has maintained its Superior Chapter status by exceeding the requirements set forth by the BAΨ National Headquarters. In order to join the organization, students must undergo a semester-long pledging process outlined in the How to Join – Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) page.
Our organization uses BeachSync. It is a platform that allows us to manage all event RSVPs, memberships, hour tracking, and more. It also enables us to be a paper-less organization. Less time spent on paper work, more time spent on members.
To sign up for our organization, all members must be a student at Cal State Long Beach with a valid student I.D. number.
