Membership into LTC's Beta Lambda Sigma Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa is based primarily on academic excellence and is extended by invitation only.
LTC's goal is to expand our students' learning opportunities. We're also committed to extending learning beyond the classroom and throughout life–Phi Theta Kappa is one of these opportunities.
Becoming a member of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society provides more than a certificate. It offers you opportunities for personal and intellectual development as well as a valuable network of connections involving careers, scholarships and other success-oriented benefits.

How do you become a member of Phi Theta Kappa?
The local chapter extends an invitation to students who meet the eligibility requirements.
How much are membership dues?
It’s a one–time $90 fee. The membership fee benefits national, regional and local chapters.
What criteria are used to determine membership?
Phi Theta Kappa membership is based on academic achievement. Students must be enrolled in an associate degree program, must complete a minimum of 12 credits of coursework leading to an associate degree, must have a cumulative 3.6 grade point average, and must enjoy full rights of citizenship.
What if I don't meet these requirements yet but plan to in the near future?
If you have not yet met the requirements listed above you may be eligible for provisional membership. A student must have earned a cumulative Grade Point Average of 3.0 on all course work completed in high school, must be currently enrolled in associate degree course work at the college, adhere to school conduct code and possess recognized qualities of citizenship. Provisional members will pay local chapter dues of $10 per year, but are not required to pay the international and regional induction fee until they have qualified for full membership. A provisional member will not have the right to vote, hold office, or to represent the chapter at meetings of the Society.
Are students who are enrolled in associate degree
programs eligible if they do not plan to complete their Associate
A member is not required to receive an associate degree, as long as he or she has met the eligibility requirements listed above.
Can a part-time student become a member?
Most chapters accept part-time members who meet all the eligibility standards listed above. Our chapter requires that you be enrolled in at least 6 credits per semester.
What is required to maintain membership?
After induction, members must maintain a cumulative 3.4 GPA.
Is participation a requirement?
Participation in chapter activities is not a requirement for membership. Phi Theta Kappa’s constitution requires only that a member make and maintain a certain grade point average. No service activities may be required of members, nor may the chapter withhold basic benefits from a member in good standing. However, you will certainly want to consider the benefits of participating in the many programs available through Phi Theta Kappa membership.
What about students who attend college in the
United States but who are not U.S. citizens?
International students are welcome to become members. They must meet the eligibility standards listed above, including full rights of citizenship in their country.
