Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

About Phi Theta Kappa

Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education. The explosive growth of community colleges in the 1960's led Phi Theta Kappa to induct students as freshmen and study programs were offered. The complement of services, innovative programs, and membership benefits offered are unequaled among honor societies. The programs offered focus upon the Society's Hallmark of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship. It is estimated that 200,000 students participate each year.


  • A student must complete a minimum of twelve hours of associate degree course work and earn a grade point average of 3.5 or more.
  • Students must maintain a high academic standing throughout their enrollment in the two-year college, generally a 3.25 GPA.
  • Part-time and full-time students are eligible for membership.
  • Students pay a one-time membership fee.
