Points System

Membership Responsibility

The Epsilon Chapter bylaws require non-initiated members to fulfill at least 45 points per semester in order to have good standing. Each hour of an event counts as 1.2 points. The points system is broken down into five categories:

BAP professional – 15 points

Non-BAP professional – 10 points

Administrative – 5 points

Tutoring – 5 points

Community Service – 10 points

Total points – 45 points

The points system we have is flexible as some points do overflow into others once you fulfill the points requirement. For example, additional tutoring services completed flows into community service.


Explanation of 5 Points Categories

BAP Professional points

Administrative points

Administrative, or admin, points are earned by attending administrative events, including non-BAP sponsored events, and assisting other BAP directors with their events. The point requirement for Administrative events for each semester is 5. Some examples of administrative events may include:

  • BAP Organizational Meetings

Tutoring points

Tutoring points are earned by attending or hosting tutoring sessions. The point requirement for BAP Tutoring for each semester is 5. Examples of qualifying tutoring events may include:

  • BHA Tutoring (as a tutor or tutee)
  • Private tutoring, as long as there is no money exchanged

Community Service points

Community service points are earned by attending qualifying service events, including non-BAP sponsored service events. Members can attend other service events outside of school so long as proper documentation and contact information is provided. The point requirement for Community Service for each semester is 10. Tutoring services also count as community service once that category has been fulfilled.


Probation

Failure to meet any of the point requirements will result in probation or removal from the organization.
If a Candidate or Initiate fails to meet one of the point requirements, then the member will be considered an Initiate on probation. If the initiate on probation fails to meet one of the point requirements in their next semester with BAP, then the member will be expelled from the organization. Additionally, all initiates must be in good standing in order to become up for initiation.
