Phi Theta Kappa Student Honor Society

Alpha Sigma Phi Chapter

For more than 100 years, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society has helped millions of high-achieving college students reach their full potential. Phi Theta Kappa members are traditional college students, and they’re working adults looking for a second chance. They need financial aid so they can complete their degree. They’re training to enter the workforce, and they’re planning to transfer to a four-year college. They span all ages, majors, and career fields. They come from all over the world. In short, they’re just like you.

Clark College recognizes Phi Theta Kappa as an official honor society since 1991. We don’t just recognize students’ academic success; we give them opportunities to develop professional and leadership skills, earn scholarships, explore career paths — and make their worlds a lot bigger.
