Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society to recognize and encourage scholarship specifically among community college students. Students at Bergen are invited to join each semester after they have earned a minimum grade point average in a minimum of twelve credits taken at BCC and are enrolled in a degree program. For details, see http://alphaepsilonphi.ning.com/membercrit or http://www.ptk.org/directories/chapters/NJ/65-1.htm
Members of our chapter, Alpha Epsilon Phi, organize opportunities for intellectual, social, and personal development through participation in scholarship and service activities. Phi Theta Kappa members receive preferential attention in their applications for college transfer and for scholarships, many of which are only open to Phi Theta Kappa members.
Alpha Epsilon Phi is an active society on campus. To maintain enhanced membership within the Chapter, atten-dance at meetings and/or service is necessary. Participation equates to approximately eight hours per year, and the type of service changes from year to year depending on the chapter’s executive committee. Independent community service will not be considered as service to the Chapter. During the past ten years, the annual time devoted to Phi Theta Kappa by a member is approximately 15 hours.
* The qualifying GPA includes grades in all degree as well as non-degree courses.
** Attempted and/or earned credits in non-degree credits courses are not used to determine minimum credits in these categories.
Where the number of degree credits earned and number of degree credits attempted fall into different categories, the qualifying GPA is determined by the category that has the least number of credits.
