Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is the international honor society for two-year junior and community colleges. The organization has recognized academic excellence in two-year colleges since 1918 and has become the largest and one of the most prestigious honor societies in higher education. More than 1.2 million members have been inducted at 1200 colleges in the United States, Canada, Japan, U.S. territorial possessions and military installations abroad.

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) membership is based primarily upon academic achievement. Invitation to membership, which can only be extended through the local campus chapter at Suffolk County Community College, will open new doors for your academic journey. Unlike most honor societies which simply offer a certificate of membership, Phi Theta Kappa offers a myriad of opportunities for scholarships, intellectual enrichment and personal development through programs based on Phi Theta Kappa's four hallmarks of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship.
