Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for 2-year college students, founded in 1918 for the purpose of recognizing scholarly ability amongst students and promoting opportunities for personal growth and the enrichment of communities. Membership is life-long, and it comes with multiple career-based and financial benefits intended to provide a competitive edge to dedicated students.
