“I graduated in 2012 with an associate’s in business management and a certificate in small business development. I went on to open my own small business and have found great success in my career. I love what I do and I owe a lot of my success to the time I spent at EMCC!”
Phi Theta Kappa
The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is the recognition and encouragement of scholarship among associate degree students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunities for the development of leadership and service, an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, lively fellowship for scholars, and areas of interest for continuing academic excellence.
Membership is extended by invitation. To be considered for membership, a student must:
- be enrolled during the semester that the invitation is being extended;
- have completed a minimum of 12 academic credit hours;
- have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher; and
- be of good moral character and possess recognized qualities of citizenship.
Membership is recognition of intellectual achievement while students are enrolled in college, as they continue their education, and as they seek employment. Membership avails opportunities for leadership and service locally, regionally, and nationally.
The membership fees are the sole resource by which Phi Theta Kappa is able to provide education and cultural programs and services for its members.
