- Select a member of your school's faculty to serve as the sponsor of the chapter.
- Start a math club for your math students.
- Check grades of your math club members to determine who is eligible to become a Mu Alpha Theta member. All students must meet the student eligibility requirements.

- Submit the petition along with a one-time $25 charter fee and the $10 one-time membership registration fee for each student joining your chapter. All fees will be returned if the institution is deemed ineligible for membership.

***Please note: As of February 10, 2017, we will no longer accept the previous version of the charter petition. Please make sure you submit the appropriate petition linked above.**
Each petitioning institution will be notified within two weeks whether or not a charter has been granted. When a charter is granted, each student will receive a certificate of membership and a membership card. The school will receive a charter certificate suitable for framing.
