The Accounting Honor Society (Pre-Beta Alpha Psi Club) was founded for the purpose of recognizing undergraduate and graduate accounting students who have excelled in the program. Membership is extended only to a select group of accounting majors. The standards are high and are set to include only those accounting majors who have (1) a 3.5 GPA (out of 4.0) (ACCT 300 level courses and above) in two or more upper level accounting courses or (2) a 3.2 GPA in four or more upper division accounting courses. Those students must also have achieved at least a 3.2 overall GPA at NYIT.
Those who did not take 300-level (or above) Accounting Courses can still join the club: Freshmen who will take ACCT 101 (Accounting I), ACCT 102 (Accounting II) and ACCT 110 (Managerial Accounting) can join the club as pre-members. As semester goes along, they need to maintain a 3.5 GPA on these basic courses. For those who get lower than a 3.5 GPA on these courses will lose the pre-membership automatically.
The purpose of the NYIT Accounting Honor Society is to: (1) recognize superior achievement in accounting; (2) promote, encourage, and maintain academic and professional excellence in accounting; and (3) to encourage service in the accounting profession.
Every spring an induction ceremony is held for new members. Five characteristics must be exemplified by each member:
Members set the high standards and dedication to the accounting profession that will be continued by future members. Members promote high standards in accounting through hard work, discipline and performance.
We, the faculty and staff of the Department of Accounting and Finance, are proud of each and every one of the members of the Accounting Honor Society (Pre-Beta Alpha Psi Club).
