It is estimated that 200,000 students participate in Phi Theta Kappa programs every year.  Joining PTK is by invitation.

Members also receive automatic nominations to the National Dean’s List and jo postings exclusively for Phi Theta Kappans.

The Key is a golden slab, keyed at the top and bottom. Across the center of the slab is a black enamel band upon which three Greek letters appear, which are the initials of three mystic Greek words meaning phronimon (Phi), thumos (Theta),   katharotes (Kappa) and meaning “wisdom,” “aspiration,” and “purity.” Behind the band is a wreath, on one side composed of oak leaves, and on the other, of laurel. The wreath of oak leaves denotes stability and strength of character, and the curling leaves of laurel signify achievement and success. Above the band is a representation of the head of Athena, Goddess of Learning; in the base appear the mystic Greek letters meaning light, the light of learning and knowledge.
