Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society

April 10, 2014

What are the benefits of membership? Membership in Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society will open new doors for your academic journey. The organization offers a myriad of opportunities for scholarships, intellectual enrichment, and personal development through programs based on Phi Theta Kappa’s four hallmarks of:

1. Scholarship
2. Leadership
3. Service
4. Fellowship

As a member, your academic excellence will be recognized with the Golden Key Membership Pin, membership certificate and identification card, notation of membership on your diploma and transcripts and the privilege of wearing regalia at graduation that sets you apart as a Phi Theta Kappa member.

Is participation a requirement? Active participation in the chapter is not a requirement. There are no service activities required to maintain membership benefits. However, you will certainly want to consider the benefits of being an active member which include opportunities to increase your leadership skills, participate in service projects, as well as a myriad of fellowship and scholarship opportunities.

What are the membership requirements? To be eligible for membership you must enjoy full rights of citizenship of your country of origin, have completed 12 hours of coursework leading to a degree and have a GPA of 3.25 or higher.

How do I become a member? Qualified students will receive a letter of invitation in their student email with instructions on How To Enroll. Members pay a one-time fee of $75.00 at the time of enrollment, which entitles them to membership in the local, regional and international levels. 

What is required to maintain membership: After induction, members must simply maintain a GPA of 3.0 to remain an active member.
