Members are chosen not only for their scholastic achievement in a Computing Science program, but also for distinguishing themselves as true professionals by meeting the standards of the society. Membership is limited to those who can effectively achieve the following goals of the society:

  1. The recognition of outstanding talent in the field of Computing Science,
  2. The promotion of high scholarship in Computing Science,
  3. The establishment and maintenance of high standards in Computing Science,
  4. The representation of Computing Science in interdisciplinary communications, and
  5. The encouragement of individual contributions to society through Computing Science.

Specific criteria for which potential members are evaluated are defined in the Chapter's Constitution. Please read the Election of Members Article, Section two of the Constitution for more information on membership criteria. This will allow you to determine if you have met the numerical criteria.

After all of the eligibility requirements have been met, prospective students are sent a letter of invitation to join the national and local UPE chapter. Students must be present at the induction ceremony in order to join. Also, there is an one-time cost of $35.00 --- for national UPE dues. The invitation is only offered once; thus, it is important that you consider it very carefully.
