The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is...
"... to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa shall provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence."
The mission of Phi Theta Kappa is two-fold: 1) recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and (2) provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming.
Students must have a minimum 3.5 GPA and have completed at least 12 credit hours to be eligible for Phi Theta Kappa.
