Phi Theta Kappa

  1. Is anyone a member of Phi Theta Kappa? I joined last semester and I received an offer for two $5000 scholarships from colleges in my state. I was wondering about some of the other benefits Phi Theta Kappa may offer.

    I believe it is the Nursing Honor Society. It is a huge honor and they have to invite you to join. (That is if I am not mistaken)

    I am a member, but I do not participate. I know that they offer a lot of scholarships. I also received a rebate from Ford when I bought my new van. Their website offers other benefits.

    Phi Theta Kappa is a honor society for 2 year colleges. I got an offer to join but was broke when I got the letter (I think it's $50 to join). I wonder if they will still let me join.

    I'm a member of Phi Theta Kappa but don't participate either. As a matter of fact, I have the packet in front of me right now. Not really sure what I need to be doing to participate!

    Yes, it it for students with GPA 3.0 and up. I guess it it 3.0 and not 3.5. Anyways, I didn't send my application in when i got the offer because I didn't have the money. I thought that they will send the second semester another application. But though i had 4.0 again, I didn't get any. I would like to stop by to their office (chapter at my school) and ask them if I still apply.
    I have seen some students write on their application for employment being a member of this organization and they get better jobs and easier.
    I don't think is only for Nursing, because last year I wasn't in the Nursing Program. But someone else may know better and correct me of the GPA too if I am wrong.
    Congratulations on the scholarship Bob007cat. Did you have to apply for it?

    As for as GPA, as far as I can remember, you have to have at least a 3.5 to get an invitation to join and maintain at least 3.0 to keep your membership.

    If you're interested we've discussed this before. You can do a search on this forum. I believe it was under the same title.

    I think the school determines the gpa that needs to be maintained. My school requires us to maintain a 3.5.
