Phi Theta Kappa was founded in 1918 and is recognized as the official honor society for two-year colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges.

Students have many opportunities to be involved in scholarly research, fellowship, community service, and leadership roles, in addition to receiving scholarships.

To be eligible for membership students must be enrolled in a regionally accredited institution offering an associate degree program; must have completed at least 12 hours of coursework that may be applied to an associate degree (part-time students may be eligible); have a grade point average of 3.5; receive an invitation to membership; should adhere to moral standards of the society.

If students think they are eligible, but they did not receive an invitation letter, they should contact their advisor by e-mail with their name and P00 number.

PTK staff can look up their records and get back to them.

There is also a one-time membership fee the students will pay of $100.

The induction ceremony will occur on Oct. 25, 2018 at 7 p.m. in the Large Auditorium, Room 2225.
