Alpha Delta Psi Chapter

Mission Statement:

Established in 1918 by Missouri two-year college presidents, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and provide opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming. Today, Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.3 million members and 1100 chapters located in the 50 United States, U.S. territories, Canada, Germany, and Japan. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges.

Phi Theta Kappa membership is based primarily upon academic achievement. Invitation to membership may be extended only by the local chapter of the institution at which you are enrolled. To be eligible for membership at Mountain Empire Community College, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must be enrolled in an associate degree program
  • You must have completed at least twelve semester hours of college-level work with a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher
  • You must enjoy full rights of citizenship

When you meet these requirements, you will automatically receive a letter from the college president inviting you to join Phi Theta Kappa. Invitations are extended each fall and spring semester.
