International Honor Society for the Two Year College

Frequently Asked Questions about Membership

How much time will being a member take?

While all members are encouraged to become active, the time a member devotes to Phi Theta Kappa is a matter of individual choice. Some Phi Theta Kappa members choose to devote many hours to chapter activities; others may elect to not participate at all. Phi Theta Kappa's Constitution requires only that a prospective inductee make and maintain certain GPAs. No service activities may be required of new or old members; nor can the chapter withhold any benefits (i.e., wearing honors stole; receiving scholarship recommendations).

What about fees?

The fee to join the Tau Nu Chapter is $75.  Part of this fee ($45) goes to the International organization, part ($10) to the Regional organization and the rest ($20) supports the activities of the chapter.  These funds allow us to support the community with program sponsorships and educational activities for members. 

What if I move after being inducted into Phi Theta Kappa? How do I update my address with Headquarters?

Members and other Society constituents can easily update their address information with Headquarters by using the On-Line Change of Address Form.

Also, visit the Phi Theta Kappa Enrollment Form to ensure that you have submitted your graduate/transfer date, major and other important information to us. Completing and updating the Enrollment Form will help ensure that you will be considered for scholarships and that you will have access to exclusive membership benefits.

I'd like to stay involved as an Alumni after I graduate. How do I find out more about Alumni resources?

Visit the online Alumni resources, which includes an Alumni Association Directory, a listing of Alumni groups.
