Honor Society (Phi Theta Kappa)

Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges, has been recognizing academic achievement since 1918. This organization has chartered 1,100 chapters; it inducted its one-millionth member in 1993.

To be eligible for membership, students must be enrolled at WCC or another regionally accredited institution offering an associate degree program. They must have completed at least 12 hours of course work leading to an associate degree (part-time students may be eligible) and have a cumulative GPA of 3.5.

Students inducted into the organization will receive a Golden Key membership pin, an embossed certificate, the Golden Key Newsletter, and a Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship Directory. Some $34 million in transfer scholarships is available exclusively for society members as well as many other scholarship opportunities. Society members will wear a gold braid and tassel at commencement ceremonies and receive a gold diploma seal indicating membership. This designation will also be included on students' academic transcripts.

If you meet the eligibility requirements for Phi Theta Kappa or would like further information, a brochure is available in the Student Activities office, or you may call the chapter advisor for Phi Theta Kappa at 734-973-3729.
