“I chose EMCC for affordability. I saved between $40-50k by starting my education here. I was debt-free six months after graduation. My classes were also full of non-traditional students, which gave me a perspective and value that I may have missed out on elsewhere.”
In order to be inducted as a member, the Phi Theta Kappa International Constitution requires that a student be currently enrolled at a two-year college with a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative grade point average on a total of 12 hours of associate degree course work completed at that institution.
Many chapters also set a slightly lower maintenance standard for membership of approximately 3.25. Members falling below the maintenance grade point average are given one semester of academic probation before membership is revoked.
Occasionally, chapters may also wish to confer Provisional or Honorary Membership upon a person not meeting membership eligibility requirements, but who provides a special service to the chapter.
