Benefits of a Phi Theta Kappa Membership

There are several benefits to being inducted into Phi Theta Kappa. These include:

  • A notation on your official MCC transcript and gold seal on your diploma indicating PTK status.
  • A stole, presented to each graduating member of PTK at the Evening of Excellence Award Ceremony. This stole will be worn at commencement.
  • Ability to access, a national scholarship database for all PTK members.
  • PTK pin and certificate.
  • Active members receive additional benefits such as funds to attend regional & national conferences, possible nomination for scholarships and awards, and more.

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) membership guarantees you access to more benefits than any other student organization, including eligibility to apply for transfer scholarships offered by Phi Theta Kappa to fund a baccalaureate degree. For example, you would be automatically enrolled in, a transfer planning program that also includes detailed information on transfer scholarships offered only to Phi Theta Kappa members at 4 year institutions across the country.

Membership also includes an array of benefits designed to help you grow as a scholar and leader. Our chapter allows you to network with a group of like minded students on campus and hone critical leadership skills such as researching issues in your community, working on a team to plan ways to impact or resolve those issues, learning to effectively communicate and collaborate with fellow students, faculty, administration, and local businesses, and learning to negotiate conflicts in a positive way through our Honors in Action program.

The Middlesex Community College PTK chapter meets regularly and plans several fun and educational events! Getting to meet new friends and classmates is another great benefit of being inducted!
