Why should I join?
When you join Phi Theta Kappa, you become a member of one of the largest honoraries in the world. Only those with the highest grades in the community college setting are invited to Phi Theta Kappa.
How much of a time commitment is Phi Theta Kappa?
You only get what you want out of Phi Theta Kappa what you put in it–Phi Theta Kappa depends on you!
How much does it cost?
It costs $75, which is a one-time only membership fee. Each semester, the club selects at least one student to have their fee waived, based on what they can bring to the organization and on their financial need.
How often do they meet?
Phi Theta Kappa members meet on average, once a week. If you can't make it to the meetings, all members are invited to a discussion board on Blackboard, where online discussions, calendars of events and meeting minutes are posted, so all of our current members can stay connected!
