What is Phi Theta Kappa?
Phi Theta Kappa is the International Honor Society for associate degree-granting colleges. National Park College's chapter of PTK is Alpha Beta Psi. To be invited for membership, a student must have completed 12 or more semester hours in a degree program or 6 or more hours in a certificate program at NPC with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher. PTK allows students the chance to develop skills in leadership, scholarship, fellowship, and service. Please visit www.ptk.org for more information from the international office.
The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa shall be to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa shall provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship between scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.
