Phi Theta Kappa

NCCC’s Beta Theta Pi Chapter was charted in 1999.  “This honor society is nationally recognized for providing incredible support to community college students and for advancing the community college experience across the nation,” stated Dr. Steve Tyrell, College President. He added “We are so pleased to recognize these outstanding students who have dedicated themselves to scholarship, service and leadership at the College and in their local communities.”

Each semester, invitation to membership is extended by the Chapter to students who have completed at least 15 hours of course work at North Country Community College with a minimum 3.5 grade point average, leading to an Associate Degree.

Phi Theta Kappa has been recognizing academic achievement in two-year colleges since 1918. Phi Theta Kappa has chartered over 1,285 chapters, and has inducted more than three million members. Phi Theta Kappa chapters are located on campuses in all fifty of the United States, Canada, U.S. territories and military installations abroad. It is the only international acclaimed honor society serving institutions which offer associate degree programs.

Two-year college presidents and administrators of associate degree programs in four-year schools have continually recognized membership in Phi Theta Kappa as an honor and a privilege. Membership is given added significance by the fact that the Society is recognized by the American Association of Community Colleges as the official general honor society for two-year colleges.
