Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society
Location: Sierra Building, Library 114
Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is an international honor society of two-year colleges, and two-year academic programs. The TMCC Alpha Pi Gamma Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa was chartered in 1989. The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize and encourage scholarship among associate degree students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunity for the development of leadership and service, creates an intellectual climate to exchange ideas and ideals, enhances lively fellowship for scholars and stimulates interest in continuing academic excellence. Phi Theta Kappa has been recognizing academic achievement in two-year colleges since 1918.
Invitation to membership in Phi Theta Kappa can be extended by the chapter to students enrolled in an associate degree program. The student must have completed at least 12 units of course work, above the 100-level, leading to an associate degree and have a minimum grade point average of 3.5.
Qualified students will receive a letter of invitation to become members, then periodic emails about chapter meetings and events.
Additional information is available on the Phi Theta Kappa website.
