Applying for Phi Theta Kappa

Students should have received an email from the President of Mesa Community College.  This does not mean the student is automatically in Phi Theta Kappa:

  • They must apply for membership – either online or paper.
  • They can pay online when they apply or at the cashiers office at MCC

If students apply online, they are requested to complete a “Mentor Nomination Form” separately.  This will either be emailed once the student becomes a member, or the member can pick it up in the Center for Community & Civic Engagement.
