Phi Theta Kappa

What is Phi Theta Kappa?

Phi Theta Kappa is the honor society of two-year colleges. We work on developing Scholarship, Leadership, Fellowship, and Service skills.

  1. A chance to apply for scholarships to transfer universities. Over $36 million in scholarships is available only to Phi Theta Kappa members!
  2. Discounts for shopping, including reduced car insurance rates.
  3. The chance to improve your leadership skills and make new friends.
  4. The chance to earn service points to receive a T-shirt, graduation stole, and letter of recommendation from the college president.
  5. The chance to get involved and make a difference at your college, in your community, and in the world!

How do I join?

You will be sent an invitation by the president of the college when:
  1. You have completed 12 credit hours.
  2. You have a 3.5+ GPA.
Once you receive the letter in the mail (in late September for Fall semester or late February for Spring semester), you need to:
  1. Turn in an application.
  2. Turn in an unofficial copy of your transcript.
  3. Turn in the one-time $80 membership dues. (We also offer reduced membership fee options; please ask an adviser.)

What if I don't have 12-credits or a 3.5 GPA?

You can become a provisional member. You can attend meetings and participate in activities without having to pay the $80, but you can't vote or apply for scholarships. Once you have the 12 credit hours and a 3.5 GPA, you can become a full member.

When and where are the meetings?

Our chapter meets every Wednesday at noon in Business Building, Room 127. Lunch is provided!
