PTK Membership Eligibility

Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for two-year technical and community colleges. We use a college-wide computer search to determine which students are eligible to join. As a result, sometimes individuals are overlooked. If you are eligible, or if you know someone who may be, please feel welcome to contact me. 1. Eligibility requirements: a) completed a minimum of 12 college-level credits (classes numbered 100 or higher) with a GPA of 3.50 b) have at least two quarters remaining before you graduate (due to the way some of Skagit Valley College's degrees are structured, we can now waive this latter requirement). 2. Orientations: a) Who can attend: any interested student – you do not need to be eligible to join Phi Theta Kappa to attend an orientation. b) Why attend: Meet current members and the advisor. These individuals will also explain the benefits of joining Phi Theta Kappa. Also, application forms will be handed out at each orientation. c) The orientation schedule (locations and times) will be posted by mid-quarter. 3. Fees: * Application fee: The one-time only application fee will be $80. This fee is broken down in the following portions: $45 goes to the International Headquarters, $5 goes toward Regional Dues, and $30 is kept by our chapter, Alpha Omicron Sigma. * Membership dues: there are no ongoing membership dues. The $30 portion of your application fee represents your membership dues. Once the application fee is paid, you owe no money to our chapter.

Meeting Times

Meetings will be held on the following Wednesdays in the student lounge (or across from it). Meetings are open to everyone - whether a member of Phi Theta Kappa or not. Each meeting typically lasts between 1 and 1.5 hours.

Graduation Regalia

All members, excluding officers, are required to purchase their graduation regalia (if interested in wearing any). The stole and tassel may be purchased from www.ptk.org. From there, go to the recognitions store. You will need your membership id number (that number may be found on the card that was attached to your membership certificate.)
