A 2-year fraternity/sorority/honors society that accepts anyone with a 3.5 GPA or higher, about 12-18 units, and some money to waste. Only reason to join is for one's application to a 4-year institute. Their "leadership conferences" are a joke.
Oh! I received an acceptance letter from Cornell purely on the basis that I'm in Phi Theta Kappa?
International Honor Society for two-year colleges. If you join, there are benefits available ONLY to members, and it is NOT a scam. You must be enrolled in a regionally accredited institution offering an associate degree program;
you must have completed at least 12 hours of coursework that may be applied to an associate degree (part-time students may be eligible);
you must generally have a grade point average of 3.5;
you must receive an invitation to membership from the chapter at the college where presently enrolled;
you must adhere to the moral standards of the society.
Phi Theta Kappa members enjoy the benefits of scholarships and admittance to colleges on distinguished terms open only to them.
