Initiates

Membership in Beta Phi Mu stresses more than grade point average: service and professional promise are also considerations. The international organization limits nominations to membership of 25% of any graduating class in any school with an active chapter. A grade point average of 3.75 (on a 4-point scale) is required for membership. At the School of Information Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the faculty selects from that group of students the 25% to nominate for membership.

Renomination

Any individual who has been invited to join Beta Phi Mu in the past and now wishes to accept that invitation should contact the chapter that initially invited her or him to join and ask that chapter to send verification to headquarters that the person was invited to join. Upon receipt of this information and the person's name and address, the international office will issue an invitation to join, process the new member's application, and notify the chapter.

Graduates should contact Linda C. Smith, Professor and Associate Dean for Academic Programs, School of Information Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 501 E. Daniel Street, Champaign, Illinois 61820 or lcsmith@illinois.edu.
