Membership in Pi Sigma Alpha takes place within each chapter. To join the Alpha Epsilon Pi chapter, undergraduate students must meet the following criteria:
Recruitment occurs in early February of each year. Any interested students can contact the chapter advisor, Professor Leslie Schwindt-Bayer at firstname.lastname@example.org, to request consideration for membership. The chapter advisor will also reach out to Political Science majors encouraging them to consider joining the organization. Students who meet the eligibility requirements will be formally invited to join Pi Sigma Alpha. Joining simply requires a statement of interest and payment of the one-time national organization dues, currently set at $35.
The chapter will hold a formal induction ceremony in March/April each year where students will receive a certificate and be formally inducted into the society.
