The Kentucky Beta Chapter, founded at Cumberland College in 1993, was the second chapter in the commonwealth.

Requirements for membership are completion of three college mathematics courses including one semester of calculus, a B average or better in all mathematics courses, a ranking in the upper 35% of your class, and completion of three semesters of college courses. Transfer students must have completed at least one semester at the University of the Cumberlands.
