Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Phi Theta Kappa is recognized as the official honor society for community colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges.

Phi Theta Kappa recognizes and rewards high-achieving students and provides opportunities through Honors in Action and the Five Star Competitive Edge to develop such critical skills as problem solving, project planning, team building, effective communication and conflict resolution. These skills can give you a competitive edge when planning for transfer or applying for jobs. However, members are not required to participate in chapter activities or student development programs.


Students in all degree programs are eligible when they have completed 12 credit hours in a program (does not include success courses) with a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher.

Membership is based on superior academic achievement and is conferred only by invitation of your local chapter.


Phi Theta Kappa meets the second Monday of each month from 12:00-12:45pm in Black Hawk Hall 225.

Formal Induction

Formal induction is held during the spring semester for new fall and spring members. Family and friends are encouraged to attend the induction. For more information, contact the Phi Theta Kappa advisor.
