Membership Information

Who can be a member?

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is an academic honors society; consequently, a competitive GPA is required.  After completing no less than 12 units, students must have an overall GPA of 3.5 and above.  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 a PTK advisor.  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, participating in PTK activities, and communicating with officers and advisors. Volunteer opportunities are organized, committees are formed to work on different projects, connections are made with fellow Phi Theta Kappans, and fun events are held both on and off campus. Members are encouraged to enrich their time at MiraCosta College by becoming involved in PTK.
