Phi Theta Kappa
Frequently asked Questions

What are the eligibility Requirements?
To be eligible, a student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and have completed 12+ units of associate degree coursework.

What do I have to do to join?
If you meet the eligibility requirements, all that is needed to join is to complete the membership application and write a check for $80 dollars. Paper applications are available at the orientation sessions listed above or from Ron Andrade, Phi Theta Kappa Advisor, in College Center Building 10, Room 220D. 

What do I have to do as a member?
Technically, you don’t have to do anything. That being said, we encourage students to become active and participate at our events both on and off campus. The more that you do with our organization, the more you can gain from it.

What benefits come with being a Phi Theta Kappa Member?
There are various official benefits: eligibility for scholarships and recognition on official documents and at graduation, but the real benefits of Phi Theta Kappa are far beyond those. Check out our testimonials page to hear personal stories of how Phi Theta Kappa changed the lives of our students.

What happens if my GPA drops after becoming a member?
Everyone has a bad semester; therefore, we do not cancel enrollment for members who’s GPA has fallen.

What if I am interested, but I do not qualify?
You cannot officially become a member with the international society, and therefore cannot participate in international events, but our meetings on campus are open to all students. We encourage students to come see what we do and participate, especially if they are interested in becoming active.
