Phi Theta Kappa (Rho Beta Chapter)

Region: Middle States

Phi Theta Kappa is the International Honor Society of two-year colleges. Eligibility for membership in Rho Beta, the Harford Community College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, is based on scholastic achievement. Students who have completed 12 credit hours and maintained a 3.50 GPA will be invited to join Phi Theta Kappa. Students who are invited to become members must complete an application and pay a $75 membership fee prior to their induction into the honor society. Invited students must turn in their application materials to the Office of Student Activities or to chapter advisor Chris Jones in Fallston 175. Membership fee is to be paid at the cashier's office.

Members of the Rho Beta Chapter participate in local service projects and fundraising activities. Each year students design a program around an honors topic, which provides the College community with an opportunity to study and debate important issues. Members also attend special regional and national Phi Theta Kappa functions; they are automatically eligible for scholarships directed toward Phi Theta Kappans. Rho Beta members are expected to meet a certain level of service and participation in order to remain a member in good standing. Those in good standings at the time of commencement are specially recognized.
