What is the GPA (grade point average) a student has to have to be eligible to join Beta?

Our Constitution  indicates that a student must be working on or above grade level.


What if I have students who were members at another school?

Membership can be transferred to a club within the same division (i.e. Junior Division I to Junior Division I, Senior Division to Senior Division). A club has the right to have each transfer student meet its specific membership requirements or simply accept them on the grades from the previous school.


Isn't $15 a lot of money to ask the students to spend?

The $15 fee required of each student (per division) helps our organization cover expenses. And it allows students to experience the honor of being recognized in a national organization for their efforts and achievements. In addition, the students, school and sponsor receive membership, leadership and web-based materials at no extra cost.


What does the name "Beta" mean? Is it an acronym?

Beta is not an acronym. Our founder, Dr. John W. Harris, chose the name when he founded the organization in 1934. Beta is the second letter of the Greek alphabet, and "B" represents "bios" (the Greek word for life). Dr. Harris felt it was important for members to learn how to make a life for themselves.
