Good morning. I just read about Phi Theta Kappa after my teacher and I spoke about it. I’m going in my second semester in school finishing up my developmental courses and interested in seeing if I meet the requirement to join.

Phi Theta Kappa, The Honor Society of Two Year Colleges, basic requirements are a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and completion of at least 12 in curriculum credits (meaning not developmental courses) to qualify to apply to the Honor Society. Once you have achieved this benchmark, a letter of invitation is mailed to you from the college to attend an information session about the organization. These letters are sent out each fall and spring semesters.

If you have further questions, you can email the PTK advisor, Mr. Michael Uenking, at I hope this helps to clarify the qualifications for membership to PTK at TNCC.
