Honors Society

Membership in the Honors Society is an excellent way to meet other students and get involved in college activities. Students who are admitted to the Honors Program automatically become members of the Honors Society. The society is continually seeking new members.

Phi Theta Kappa, Tau Pi Chapter

Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society was founded in 1918 to recognize the academic achievement of students at two-year colleges. Phi Theta Kappa’s programs are based on the hallmarks of scholarship, leadership, service, and fellowship. The organization offers many transfer scholarships available only to society members. Other benefits include automatic nomination for the National Dean’s List publication of outstanding students from two-year, four-year, and graduate schools, as well as automatic enrollment in the Phi Theta Kappa database from which four-year and senior level institutions actively recruit. Membership criteria includes a 3.5 GPA and a minimum of 15 credit hours earned at PGCC. The Tau Pi Chapter at Prince George’s Community College inducts new members in the late fall semester and at the Student Honors Convocation every spring semester.

For more information, contact Professor Lindsey A. Dodson, Phi Theta Kappa advisor, at honors@pgcc.edu or call 301-546-5293.
