How Do I Join?
Membership in Phi Theta Kappa is by invitation only. All eligible students receive an invitation to join once each semester. To be eligible, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and completed a minimum of 12 college-level units at CSN. Invitations are sent out the semester following when both criteria are met. Please note that Phi Theta Kappa and CSN have specific deadlines that must be met for application processing, so please act promptly. If you receive an invitation but do not attend one of the orientations listed or wait a few months to respond and apply on-line, you may not be able to join.
Is There a Fee?
Yes, there is a $90 fee. When you join Phi Theta Kappa you automatically become a member of your local chapter, Alpha Xi Beta, the Nevada/California Region, and Phi Theta Kappa International. These fees help cover the operating costs of all three organizations.
