An international organization, Phi Theta Kappa has recognized academic excellence, leadership, and service in two-year colleges since 1918.

In order to qualify for membership in Phi Theta Kappa, students must have completed at least 12 college credits, be pursuing an associate or bachelor’s degree at NMC, and must maintain a 3.5 cumulative grade point average.
