Phi Theta Kappa has been recognizing academic achievement in two-year colleges since 1918. Phi Theta Kappa has chartered over 1,300 chapters and has inducted more than 3.5 million members. Phi Theta Kappa chapters are located on campuses in all fifty of the United States, Canada, U.S. territories, and military installations abroad. It is the only internationally acclaimed honor society serving institutions that offer associate degree programs.

Two-year college presidents and administrators of associate degree programs in four-year schools have continually recognized membership in Phi Theta Kappa as an honor and a privilege. Membership is given added significance by the fact that the society is recognized by the American Association of Community Colleges as the official general honor society for two-year colleges.
