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.


Advisors: Jane Mushinsky & Julie Bollerud


Executive Phi Theta Kappa Board 2013 - 2014

Membership Information

Who can be a member?

Who can be a member?

Phi Theta Kappa is an elite honors society; consequently, a competitive GPA is required.  After no less than 12 units completed, the students overall GPA must be 3.5.  Those who meet the standards are normally mailed requests to join, but if a student believes he or she qualifies and did not receive a letter, they can contact Co-Advisor Julie Bollerud ( in Student Services (room 3447).  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. This website will also be a key to finding ways to become more active. Committees will be continually formed to address different issues (members are encouraged to participate in such committees), volunteer functions are always being planned by the executive board, and events on campus are fun to attend and organize. We hope to see as many members as possible step up this year and get the most out of their time at MiraCosta College.
