Phi Theta Kappa

Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society for Two-year Colleges was established more than 80 years ago to acknowledge and promote the academic achievements of two-year college students. Membership in Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunities for each student to nurture his or her own personal growth in leadership and service. Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education.

The purpose of the Alpha Chi Lambda Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at MiraCosta College is the promotion of scholarship, the development of leadership, and service and the cultivation of fellowship among the qualified students at this college. This shall be done through the Phi Theta Kappa Representatives; its Constitution, Bylaws and supporting codes.

Membership Information

Who can be a member?

Phi Theta Kappa is an elite honors society; consequently, a competitive GPA is required.  After completing no less than 12 units, students must have an overall GPA must be 3.5.  Those who meet the standards are invited to join, but if a student believes he or she qualifies and did not receive a membership invitation, they should contact Co-Advisor Julie Bollerud ( in Student Services (room 1037).  After completing the online application process and paying the membership fee, the student is officially a PTK member.

How to get involved?

Members can get involved by attending meetings and communicating with officers and advisors. This website and the chapter's Facebook page are key to finding ways to become more active. Committees are formed to work on different projects, volunteer opportunities are sought out by the executive board, and fun events are organized on and off campus. Members are encouraged to participate in these committees and activities. We hope to see as many members as possible enrich their time at MiraCosta College by becoming involved in Phi Theta Kappa..
