Phi Theta Kappa is the official Honors Society for two-year colleges. Students are automatically invited to join Phi Theta Kappa during the semester after they have completed 12 credit hours at Harper with a 3.5 GPA or higher. Please note that there is a one-time fee for joining. Phi Theta Kappa is separate from the Honors Program, though many students are members of both.
Your participation with this organization is notated on your college transcripts, which distinguishes students while applying at a four-year institution.
Some of the benefits of becoming a Phi Theta Kappa member include:
Visit https://join.ptk.org/ and enter in your Harper College email address. Pay a one-time membership fee and become a lifelong member. Please do NOT purchase a stole. The Chapter gifts new members with a complimentary stole.
The one-time membership fee is $80, of which $65 goes to national and regional fees; $15 is for Harper College’s local chapter of Phi Phi to help fund meetings, travel to regional events, cultural and service outings, scholarships, national conferences and the induction ceremony.
Members are acknowledged as high academic scholars and distinguished as the best of the best among peers.
The Phi Theta Kappa Induction is a ceremony where new members are recognized for their great academic achievements.
Students will receive an email to accept membership and a paper invitation will also be sent to eligible students after the start of each semester. The invitation will be mailed to the address on file with the Registrar's Office.
New members will receive an invitation to attend the fall PTK Welcome Reception and to the spring Induction Ceremony. Please remember to check your Harper email and Blackboard regularly for important information and rsvp links.
Only students who accept membership and pay the one-time fee during their enrollment period, will be invited to attend these events.
