Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) recognizes the academic achievement of students at two-year colleges and provides opportunities to grow as scholars and leaders.

Phi Theta Kappa at Chemeketa

Founded in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society that recognizes academically high-achieving and motivated community college students. Its mission is to 

  • Recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students
  • Provide opportunities for student growth through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming

Members are eligible for exclusive Phi Theta Kappa transfer scholarships offered by four-year colleges across the country.

How to Join Phi Theta Kappa

Phi Theta Kappa provides numerous opportunities to grow professionally and is a good addition to your resume. If you’ve earned 12 credits with a GPA of 3.25 or higher you are eligible to become a PTK member and will then receive an invitation to join. You will receive an invitation to join through your Chemeketa email account or you can email or more information about membership. Once you've joined PTK you must maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA while a student at Chemeketa.
