Any two-year college with accreditation from a recognized accrediting agency and offering courses in mathematics may petition to have a chapter, provided it meets the following minimum requirements:

- Two-year colleges must offer at least three courses beyond pre-calculus, which include calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, or statistics. These requirements cannot be fulfilled by courses in general mathematics, general business mathematics, or arithmetic.
- The college must employ at least one teacher whose primary teaching field is mathematics and who has completed an undergraduate mathematics major or its equivalent at an accredited college or university. The equivalent of a mathematics major shall be understood to include a minimum of six college mathematics courses at the calculus level or above.
- The president of the college, or other chief administrative officer of the institution must approve the chartering of the chapter at the college.

Two-year college chapters shall be admitted for membership on the approval of the president and the AMATYC representative. Should either deny a petition for membership, the school may appeal the decision to the Governing Council for consideration. A two-thirds vote of the Governing Council shall be required to approve such a chapter for membership.
