Mu Alpha Theta inductees automatically become members of Math and Science Club, Mu Alpha Sigma Chi. Its major purpose is to promote greater interest in mathematics and give recognition for excellence in mathematics performance by community college students.

Membership in Mu Alpha Theta is limited to those students who have excelled in mathematics and met the minimum standard for membership.
