Chartering Process

  1. Send signed Charter Petition and Information Form to Phi Theta Kappa.
    Chartering Petition
    The Charter Petition and Information Form (Word document) verifies that the college meets the qualifications to charter, that the advisors have been officially appointed by the college administration and that the institution is committed to chartering a chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.

  2. Send $500 (USD) chartering fee to Phi Theta Kappa contact.
    This one-time chartering fee covers materials and travel costs incurred during the chartering process. Please contact us if you require an invoice.

    Send the signed Charter Petition and Information Form and the chartering fee to:

    Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society
    Center for Excellence
    1625 Eastover Drive
    Jackson, MS 39211

  3. Receive chapter name
    Every chapter receives their own name to identify their campus and members. Chapter names are assigned in alphabetical order.

  4. Submit Chapter Bylaws.
    Having chapter bylaws approved and on file at Headquarters is a requirement for every Phi Theta Kappa chapter. Your chapter's governing document not only helps you govern your chapter today, but it also provides guidance for future chapter officers and advisors.
