Phi Theta Kappa
Phi Theta Kappa, the International Honor Society of the Two-Year College, provides recognition for students enrolled in degree programs at accredited community colleges. Students eligible to enroll for membership become part of a large, dynamic honor society upon induction. As part of membership benefits, students receive a certificate, society lapel pin, access to the Scholarship Connection and JobTrak Services, and inclusion in publications of the society. Members are eligible for over $36 million in transfer scholarships to more than 600 senior institutions including University of Dayton, University of Cincinnati, Wittenberg University, Wright State University, Xavier University and Urbana University.
The organization also promotes among chapters and members the development of four Hallmarks—service, leadership, fellowship and scholarship. The society provides programs and conventions to assist chapters and members working to achieve the qualities of excellence we promote.
Nu Pi is the Phi Theta Kappa Chapter at Sinclair Community College. We hold inductions for students eligible to join, provide close linkage with Phi Theta Kappa headquarters, and promote the four Hallmarks in our meetings, activities, and programs. All students with a 3.5 GPA based on 12 credit hours earned at Sinclair are eligible for membership. Upon graduation, members who have maintained their 3.5 GPA are entitled to wear the gold satin FQK stole and tassel, have the honor society annotation on their transcript and a gold seal for their associate’s degree diploma.
Nu Pi actively participates in the Ohio Regional organization. This third tier of Phi Theta Kappa also supports the goals and aims of Phi Theta Kappa International, located in Jackson, Ms. Regional activities are covered in the regional newsletter, The Buckeye.
